17th Century Munition Quality Rapier

Long Image

This is an ammunition quality rapier in the English style. It has a simple stool which is crudely chiseled with lines from which spring a knuckleguard and two scroll guards. The pommel is also crudely chiseled with lines and the knucklebow attatches to the pommel by means of a screw.

The blade has a thick and long ricasso and a short fuller which gives way to a diamond section.

Overall the sword is 99cm long - the blade being 83cm long.

A soldiers sword of the English Civil War, it represents the munition sidearm of the common infantryman - either  musketeer or pikeman. "A good stiff tuck" being recommended for these troops; although why this was so is somewhat of a moot point. Some said it was easier to stab than to slash if on foot. Others said that as a rapier could not be used to cut anything the soldiers were not going to use it to cut firewood and thus break their sword - a common complaint by those who financed the forces of the day !

Sold.
