The rapier sword “Rada” is designed to be a standard practice model. It’s dimensions taken from the book “Experience of the Sword” by Francisco Lorenz de Rada are ideal for the practice of later Destreza. From Francisco Antonio de Ettenhard in 1675 to Rodríguez del Canto in 1725, a period of fifty years, they are preferred by the maestros of the Verdadera Destreza of the late seventeenth century. Inspired by original pieces, it seeks a compromise between practical simplicity and the aesthetics of historical models.
The rapier sword “Rada” is adapted to the hand of the fencer following the specifications of the master. This results in a perfect and comfortable grip for practicing Destreza. The blades are flexible for secure lunges without shaking or yielding when an Atajo is applied.
