Gustav Rapier, Antiqued by Paul Chen / Hanwei

The hilt is based on the original museum piece on display at The Royal Armoury museum in Stockholm. The antique was made in Germany between 1625 and 1630. It was carried by Gustav II Adolf, King of Sweden until his death in 1632.

This "antiqued" Gustav Rapier features a hilt finish, developed by Hanwei, that allows a museum-quality patina to be applied to stainless steel while the non-corroding properties of the steel are retained. This finish is very attractive and gives an authentic appearance to the sword. The blade is interchangeable with our “Practical” blade (OH2255) which is designed for safety in rapier sparring.
