Our Port & Post Side Sword Guard is made completely from 1/4″ 4130 carbon steel. This guard features straight quillions and a knuckle bow. There is a single port on the knuckle side (outside) and a pair of posts 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 in line with the simple Italian side swords popular in the 1600’s, particularly in Venice. This guard is the perfect C&T guard, especially if you are on a tight budget!
This guard is compatible with our Basic and Standard Rapier Blades, our Basic and Standard Side Sword Blades and our Youth Rapier Blade.
