Dark Rocks

This rapier is light and responsive, turning well in the hand and returning swiftly to the centre line. With its short grip and long quillons, it dominates the close-measure fight, and suits a variety of fencing styles.


The sword is slightly back-weighted, allowing for excellent feedback from the opposing blade during an action, and allowing the wielder to make quick informed decisions.


In line with our Black Ribbon suite, the long, straight quillons are tipped with hand-carved acanthus leaves, matching the engraved spherical pommel. The guard features a closed port to the top ring for superior finger coverage, and an X-shaped couterguard.


Please note: this rapier is sold as seen. If you are inspired to create your own design, please contact us to discuss a custom commission.
