The Paul Chen Gustav Rapier Sword with Scabbard

King Gustav II Adolf (1594-1632) was monarch of Sweden from 1611-1632. In 1630 as a defensive maneuver, King Gustav II entered the Thirty Years’ War to secure the Swedish state and church from danger. An excellent military tactician, Gustav led an army of unusual quality, and his position was strengthened by alliances with France, Brandenburg, and Saxony. At Lützen in 1632, the Swedes defeated Albrecht W.E. von Wallenstein's army, but King Gustav was fatally wounded in battle.

This fine Hanwei manufactured rapier sword is historically based on the original King Gustav II Adolf rapier sword and is truly fit for a king.The blade of the Gustav Rapier is made of forged flex-tempered high-carbon steel and it comes equipped with a leather scabbard. The guard of the rapier is quite impressive in design and has two shells to protect the hand. The Gustav Rapier also features a stainless steel hilt, for reduced maintenance, blade catcher quillons and a twisted wire grip. The hilt is of the same size as the original sword, as is the weight and balance, providing you an authentic feel.

This rapier and the matching main gauche blade (orderable upon request) produced by Hanwei are now interchangeable with blunted Practical Sparring blades (orderable upon request) , which are designed for safety in rapier sparring. Also available are non-antiqued versions of the Gustav Rapier and matching Main Gauche (orderable upon request).

This fully functional rapier sword is tailored to meet the demands of re-enactment and stage combat.
