The Schlaeger Rapiers by Paul Chen utilize a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate our schlaeger blades in 37”. These tapered blades provide a superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlaegers, making for a faster sword.
Fencing in the Renaissance style plays an important part in the historical re-enactment combining the quickness of light blades with the stucture and spirit of the day. Our Renaissance-style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman’s education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe.
