Woah, that's one fantastic Rapier. Particularly those baskets and guards, with the octagonal lines flowing so cleanly.

Incredible piece ! Definitely an addition to my list of favorite rapiers... a wonderful execution of the 'Pappenheimer' hilt form. I also love the dark and subtle low contrast blade.

 

Over 4lbs is a hefty rapier. Seems it would easily adapt as a horseman's sword or a cut and thrust. How does it balance?
