Standard Cup Hilt (Guard Only)


Clear selection
SKU: H012 Category:


Our Standard Cup Hilt is made from an 18 ga spun and rolled cup and a 1/4″ 4130 carbon steel core. This guard normally features straight quillions, knuckle bow and an 18 ga spun a rolled steel cup with a 12 ga steel plate at the front of the guard to re-enforce the area where the cup will take the most damage. It can be ordered with several customization options including a choice of straight, “S” curved, “crab claw” quillions or even no bottom quillion. We offer 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. This guard is a plain but solid cup hilt that will get the job done.

This guard is compatible with our Basic and Standard Rapier Blades, our Basic and Standard Side Sword Blades and our Youth Rapier Blade.
