You stare again at the young woman on the other side of the courtyard. Her sharp features and dark, unruly hair are familiar, yet different. You could almost convince yourself it were wishful thinking, were it not for the flash of steel at her side.
Like the woman, the rapier is unassuming yet unmistakably elegant, a delicately carved knuckleguard emerging from its pierced cup. Your eyes do not dwell on this detail, however, but on the gently flaring quillons and neat onion-shaped pommel.
You should have guessed your father’s last gift would be a clue, for all the riddles the old adventurer spoke. A matched set. Brushing your hand across the identical pommel of the dagger in your belt, you swallow hard and cross the square.
Function meets form in this matched set comprising of a cup hilt rapier and a sail dagger, bound aestheically by their pierced guards, flaring quillon tips and onion-shaped pommels.
Our bespoke rapier and dagger sets are available from £700
Both rapier and dagger feature hardwood grips wrapped in steel wire. The rapier’s knuckleguard bears decorative carving, and the cup and sail respectively are pierced in triangular patterns.
