Rapier from Caino

Yes, it is a reproduction of a blade found in Caino (Brescia, Italy) made with sparring-friendly tensility

You can see the blade description in the report on the Gotti collection: http://www.rapier.at/download/264/ This is the first HEMA rapier from our workshop with a blade thickness of 8 mm.

The smartest rapier blade design?

What would happen if you apply an engineering degree, modern chemical heat treatment, decades of experience in the science of making swords, and a desire to create an excellent rapier?

The answer is boring sore cuphilted failure.

Why?

Because the future of fencing can be found in its past. And to be more precise in the rapier blade from Caino in Gotti's collection.

Why is this blade so special?

Like many brilliant ideas, they seem to be obviously simple, when you understand the magic, the art, and the science behind them.

This blade balances itself!

Starting from 8mm thick (quite a biggy if compared to the rest of the flock) and finishing with 3 mm at the point this blade has an extremely well-engineered, precision-based distal taper, producing something like "zero buoyancy" in the hand.

It grants strong blade presence and excellent maneuverability well beyond our best, presumptuously called "superb" blades.
