Our Italian Side Sword Guard is made completely from 1/4″ 4130 carbon steel. This guard features a curved top quillion, no bottom quillion and a knuckle bow. There are two posts, a small port and a large ring that sweeps back to the knuckle bow on the knuckle side (outside) and only a forward pointing folded port on the finger side (inside). 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 an exact copy of an Italian sword in the Wallace Collection (A613 European Armoury III). We felt it was a splendid design for C&T combat in specific. Anyone studying Bolognese cut and thrust would find this to be a particularly fine simulator.
This guard is compatible with our Basic and Standard Rapier Blades, our Basic and Standard Side Sword Blades and our Youth Rapier Blade.
