Long extolled as the pinnacle of rapier design, the “Spanish” or “Cup-Hilt” rapier undoubtedly combined style and function very effectively in 17th century Europe. The very best of these weapons featured beautifully pierced cups and pommels and CAS Hanwei has replicated these to perfection and combined them with an elegantly tapered high-carbon steel blade in our “Taza” rapier (the name comes from the French, who called this style “a la Taza”). A leather-covered scabbard is included.
Practical Taza Cup-Hilt Rapier
Designed for the rapier fencer with a preference for the cup-hilt style who wishes to spar in saftey, our Practical Cup-hilt Rapier & Main Gauche fit the bill perfectly. The rapier blade is similiar in design to the practical blades for the swept-hilts but the length is adapted for the cup-hilt. The main gauche blade is uniquely styled to maintain the Spainish influence.
