The ‘Entry Level Cup Rapier’ is a perfect choice for beginners or club practitioners, offering a high-quality practice model at an affordable price. Inspired by historical designs and following the specifications of the master, it features the dimensions from the book ‘Experience of the Sword’ by Francisco Lorenz de Rada, which were preferred by maestros of the Verdadera Destreza in the late seventeenth century. The flexible blade allows for secure lunges and precise thrusts without shaking or yielding, making it ideal for practicing Destreza and other rapier-based martial arts.
This rapier sword is designed with a compromise between practical simplicity and historical aesthetics, making it a great option for those looking to start their HEMA journey or for club use. While some finishing details may be sacrificed to maintain affordability, the ‘Entry Level Cup Rapier’ offers excellent quality and a comfortable grip for effective practice. It is well-suited for practitioners of historical fencing schools such as Destreza, Italian rapier, and others.
