Source Sword The inspiration for my rapier is this German rapier from the early 17th century. I decided to follow the design of this sword but change the grip and pommel. This rapier has also been brass polished which I had also considered emulating, in the end I chose not to employ this technique. Photo from Garth Vincent antique arms.
