We’ve based this model following the indications of the master of the 17th Gerard Thibault. The result is a swept hilt Thibault decorated rapier sword without a knuckle bow, with a characteristic cross on the reverse and hand-forged viper decorations joining the outer rings. In addition, it has a longer grip and pommel than the usual measure in other Verdadera Destreza schools. These particularities follow the indications of the Antwerp master for his special style reflected in the Academie de l’Espée manual.
This robust and elegant Thibault decorated rapier sword, has the weight back towards the fencer’s hand and a perfect handle for the different grips of this particular style of Destreza.
