Right, I said I'd get Meyer Rappiers and I did. It took a long time, Alchem does deliver but deliver slow. We ordered sometime in October, by Xmas we had promises it was on its way, and it arrived 2-21-2012. I don't mind long waits if told in advance. On the other hand, price is cheap and so far so good.
Weight = 2.5 Pounds
Overall Length = 43 1/2 inches
Blade Length = 36 inches
Stout sword, with a guard meant to simulate Meyer rappier.
Large Pic- copy and paste if needs be.
We'll be testing them out shortly. Our biggest issue is we have worked with a variety of 17th century rapier manuals, but not a lot of 16th century. We want to stay in the spirit of Meyer and will do our best.
Because the hands are exposed and the blades are fairly thick, we will probably starting off with lacrosse gloves to begin with instead of our usual leather with the more protected 17th century-style rapiers we normally use.
I'll keep people updated!
