Our English Cup Hilt is made from 12 ga and 1/4″ 4130 carbon steel. This guard features curved and fluted quillions and knuckle bow. The cup portion is intricately pierced and dished to the specs of extant pieces. While we don’t offer much customization to this guard we do offer the 3 finishes: “Bright”, a bright antiqued satin metal finish. “Blued”, a heat blued finish. Naturally darker, more durable and rust prohibitive than chemical bluing. Finally, “Polished”, a bright shiny deep polish that provides the best rust resistance and detail preservation.
We designed this guard to be very close to the cup hilts of this type that were being produced in the 17th century.
This guard is compatible with our Basic and Standard Rapier Blades, our Basic and Standard Side Sword Blades and our Youth Rapier Blade.
