Krieger HEMA Rapier R1

Rapier, a typical western-European weapon. It came to life in the era of the renaissance as a result of the development of swordsmanship based on thrusting and its name could be roughly translated as „sword-to-suit”, so a sword to be worn daily. It was popular from the 16th to 17th century and it is closely related to the sidesword, „seitenschwert” or „spada da lato”. Rapier is a direct successor of the medieval sword, redesigned for the modern battlefield.
Weapon's parameters - even during the design phase - were consulted and tested in cooperation with the Polish HEMA Federation - DESW FEDER
