Based on models of 17th century swept-hilt rapiers of Italian ancestry, the Hanwei Torino Rapier exhibits the classic straight crossguard styling popular in this part of Europe. The rapier features classical lines, with a high-carbon steel flex-tempered blade, a stainless steel hilt (for reduced maintenance) with ”blade catcher” quillons and a twisted-wire grip.
The hilt is of the same size as the original, providing an authentic feel in the user’s hand and weight and balance also match originals.
