Description

Standard Rapier Blades

Our Standard Rapier Blades feature a hand ground, multi-tiered distal taper that is .875″ wide at the forte and .3″ at the tip with a reduced ricasso section for a comfortable grip inside. Our blades are made from high quality 5160 spring steel bar stock tempered to the optimal point where maximum toughness & durability meets hardness, 50 HRC. These blades have some nice features over their less expensive counterpart; the Basic Rapier Blade. There is a 3/8″ wide fuller that runs 8″ down the blade from the forte to reduce weight while keeping the forte section very stiff for strong binds. This fullered forte graduates to a perfect diamond cross section. These blades have a polished finish and the flex is centered in the tip third of the blade. The Standard Rapier Blade is our benchmark high quality, all purpose rapier blade; great for SCA, HEMA and WMA rapier combat.

These blades are offered in blade lengths from 35″ up to 45″ measured from the tang shoulder to the tip. On a rapier, this measurement would include the ricasso section.

We offer these blades with 2 levels of flex stiffness catering to your desired combat discipline: (F2) SCA Standard Rapier Flex & (F3) Crossover Rapier/C&T and HEMA Flex

SCA Standard Rapier Flex (F2)- Medium stiffness, compliant to SCA Rapier calibration. 1.5″ – 2″ drop @ 6 oz. (170 gr.). Recommended flex for SCA, WMA and HEMA Rapier armored combat. 

Crossover SCA Rapier/C&T and HEMA Flex (F3)- Medium heavy stiffness, compliant to SCA Rapier and Cut & Thrust calibration. 1″ – 1.5″ drop @ 6 oz. (170 gr.). Recommended flex for SCA Rapier and Cut & Thrust dual duty, WMA and HEMA armored combat. 

Finally, we offer two tip types: Normal Tip (NT) (+$0.00), the standard rounded tip that accepts a rubber blunt and Spatulated Tip (ST) (+ $10.00), a swelled and rounded tip that offers tip width of no less than 5mm.
