I want to show you this 17th century Spanish style rapier with an iron cup garnish, decorated with a mixed technique, engraved with pneumatic airgraver and opus interrasile (openwork work) with foliar motifs. It has a thin and straight blade, forged style, made of 5160 steel, two-sided, with two edges throughout. Wooden scabbard lined in black velvet with curb and brass tip. Total weight 900 grs
Blade length 100 centimeters from the cup. 6.5mm at the fort and drops to 3m at the tip. the total length 117 Centimeters
Balance point seven centimeters from the cup. it feels light and fast in the hand. hope you like!!!! best regards

Lovely work but I see screws that need timed.

Thank you very much for the answers, I am very pleased that you liked it, excuse my poor English. Screws may seem anachronistic, but this rapier sword is an interpretation of the late first or second quarter of the 17th century, they are more elaborate mugs and generally carry screws. They are not well appreciated in the photos, but they are handmade and chiseled, as they were used back then. I am attaching a couple of original photos from which we have been inspired. thank you very much again for your words, kind regards

Beautiful sword, Peter.  What Garry was referring to by saying "I see some screws that need timed" was that the slots in the screws need to end up going the same direction.  As in either vertical or horizontal.
