Pappenheimer Rapier - DA\RP34

This pappenheimer is part of a series of rapiers I made with 8mm blades. The hilt is all generously proportioned and very sturdy. The blade has a triple fuller and three changes of section. Sadly I was greatly limited by customer's choices so the final result is bit heavier than what I wanted, though still within the weight of many originals.
The blade is 8mm thick at the ricasso but still flexes safely for sparring.

Price would be around £740.
