CS88FCR: 88FCR Cavalier Rapier Sword
Cold Steel

By the mid-1600s dueling was at the height of its popularity. In fact, this trend for settling affairs of honor with steel reached such heights that King Louis XIII of France outlawed dueling for fear of losing too many of his important dignitaries to this dangerous pursuit!

Aristocratic noblemen saw it as their manly duty to defend their honor at sword-point, and as such began not only seeking out the knowledge and training imparted by specialist sword masters, but also exploring new types of weapon to help them gain a decisive edge.

One particular sword began to gain popularity - a smaller, lighter and faster version of the Rapier that was easier to carry and quicker in combat. A precursor to what would eventually become the Smallsword referred to by many simply as the transitional rapier.

Cold Steel’s interpretation of this blade (which we have named the Cavalier Rapier) features a sharp double edged and needle tipped blade which is decidedly shorter and lighter than a classic Rapier, allowing for much more speed and agility.

With a tempered steel pierced shell guard, rings, quillons and knuckle bow it offers astonishingly good hand protection, while its wire wrapped grip and counter balancing pommel give great comfort and liveliness in-hand.

Very pleased with my purchase. An absolute reputable site to purchase authentic knives. I received mine very quickly with no hassle and on top of that, the people were very pleasant and helpful. I had an issue with a promo code and I sent in an email and got a response within less than 24 hours. They were very polite and accommodating. I would definitely make another purchase from this website!
