Performance Review: This rapier is far and away the most agile rapier that I've handled and according to Craig Johnson the most agile that Arms and Armor produces as well. This rapier could actually be used for cutting or movie style fencing if desired. Most rapiers are not balanced for that sort of thing but this one fits the bill very well.
Appearance: This is a gorgeous piece of work. The detail on the floral motif of the pommel and complex hilt is astounding. The welds of the hilt itself are undetectable. The blade itself was straight without a ripple and the thin fuller was well executed. Aesthetically this is just about as good as a production piece gets.
