From my Samples, Singulars, and Somethings Completely Different collection -
The Practical series rapiers are available with either relatively stiff 37" blades or relatively flexy 43" blades. I have one rapier with a 43" blade that is really really flexy - as in you'll pick it up and go: "Wow, that's, like, a really, really flexy blade, man!" (Okay, so maybe you won't say that, but maybe you would - I know a lot of old hippies and old ex-hippies who have renounced their pacifistic ways and gone into anachronistic martial arts, I see such folks all the time (*cough*mirror*cough*). Anyways, some folks like a good stiff poke and some folks like a bit more give and take to their poking - this particular rapier is for you, the latter. (You, the latter-type dude or dudette, man!)
