Schiavona Rapier (13) by Danelli-Armouries
Schiavona Rapier (13)
This is a really uncommon weapon, there's only one original with this design, crossing a rapier with a schiavona, which I loosely replicated. It was in a museum in Boston but now is in a private collection. The original had a shorter blade and a few different details that I had to modify to make it more adapt to every day practice.
Despite the large hilt its weight is reasonable and handles like any other rapier of similar dimensions.
The dagger was the customer's design, given the lack of an original one, but it complements the rapier well.

Specs:
Rapier 
Weight: 1190 grams
Length: 124 cm - 49"
Width: 22 cm - 8"½
Blade length: 115 cm - 45"
Blade width at ricasso: 2 cm - 3\4"
Point of balance: 11 cm from quillons

Dagger:
Weight: 560 gr.
Length: 56 cm - 22"
Width: 22 cm - 8"½
Blade length: 43 cm - 17"
Blade width (ricasso): 4 cm - 1"1\2
PoB: 5 cm - 2"

Your rapiers are the type I had wanted to bring back from Spain when I visited. Unfortunately, I simply didn't have enough coin. But yours are so beautiful. Perhaps I'll investigate your entry level swords for a bit. Even the simplest ones are so beautiful and appear well crafted.

Thank you! We have a wide range of swords, but also a very long waiting list, so be patient in case!

Do you prefer factory made or hand made swords?

Are you really asking that to someone who hand craft them?

What I mean is, do you think that factory made is more efficient than hand made or vice versa?  Factory made can be very sketchy, but the same can be said for some hand craft.
