∴ An experiment in extremities ∴
When a customer requested a matched pair of rapier blades, designed for both single-handed and double-handed use, we couldn’t resist the chance to experiment.
While the blades and tangs needed to be elongated for two-handed use, the client also required that we keep the weight as low as possible for comfortable single-handed use.
Chris hollow-ground each blade from 8mm stock and added deep, pierced fullers.
The result? Two 48″ rapier blades weighing 600g each.
