Our Renaissance-style Swept Hilt Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentlemans education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe. The Main Gauche, or left hand dagger, was often used with the rapier, providing an added dimension in both offense and defense, and the Schools of Fence which proliferated in Europe during this period taught the use of the two swords in combination. The Main Gauche would often match the Rapier in styling, while incorporating features which maximized the effectiveness of the piece. The swept-hilt rapiers and their attendant main gauches have now been redesigned to provide lighter, better balanced pieces than earlier models. The hilts are now of the same size as the museum pieces, on which they are based, providing an authentic feel in the users hand. All of the rapier and main gauche are interchangeable with the Practical blades, which are designed for safety in rapier sparring. This gives the user a wide choice of swept hilt styles for use with both live and Practical blades.
