Based on models of 17th century swept-hilt rapiers of Italian ancestry, the Torino rapier and matching main gauche exhibit the classic straight crossguard styling popular in this part of Europe. The blades are made of forged high-carbon steel and are equipped with black leather scabbards. The guard has an ornate design with straight quillons to protect the hand and for wrapping the fingers around to increase functionality and one’s grip strength. The guard on this rapier is completely sinister, made for fencers who are in their right mind (or really dextrous right-handed fencers who fight case).
Also available are the Torino rapier, Torino main gauche, and antiqued versions of the Torino rapier and antiqued Torino main gauche.
