#211 Lombardy Rapier
The Lombardy region of Italy gave birth to some of the great masters of the rapier and this classic piece will do justice to their legacy.

This is a classic Northern Italian Rapier from the last quarter of the 16th century. This elegant hilt is crafted in steel with three parallel sweeping bars, bisected with discs at the mid-line of the fore guard. With these sweeps and a straight guard swelling at the finals, the form of this hilt is a Norman Type 74 with a three branch inner guard. The fluted pommel of a truncated-cone shape has a turned base and button. The grip is bound in wire and finished with turksheads top and bottom. All are mounted on a narrow thrusting blade with a fuller down the forte.
