- FENCING SWORD

This is a 46 inch replica of an Italian Rapier sword the kind used for Fencing in the Middle Ages. This is a Stainless Steel piece with an ultimate hand guard design. This sword is very solid and well balanced and fully functional as a fencing sword. This sword because of its great detail and history is a collector's masterpiece!

Swords have been in use since the Bronze Age and nearly all people of antiquity practiced swordsmanship. Fencing as a contest has existed at least since 1190 BC as shown in a relief carving in Upper Egypt from that time depicting adversaries with covered swordpoints and padded masks under the observation of spectators and judges. In the Middle Ages swords were essential to civilians and soldiers. England's Henry VIII ordered fencing displays. Not until the 16th cent. however when the light Italian rapier replaced the heavy German sword did the sport become widespread and the subject of scientific theory. Fencing schools or salles frequented by young aristocrats soon sprang up all over Europe and fencing duels often settled matters of personal honor. In the late 19th cent. after many countries had outlawed the duel fencing became an organized sport. Fencing has been a part of the Olympics since the first modern games in 1896 though women did not compete until 1924 and still compete in foil and épée only. (Please Note: This Sword does not come with a Sheath)

"What can I say - It's a Buck! Excellent feel and of course very sharp. I have owned many Buck knives over the years (I'm 69) and I have never been disappointed."

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
