In contrast to the elaborate shape of the basket, the crossguard, grip and pommel are rather simple – a single, fine braided counter-guard between the grip and pommel neck creates a handsome accent. The crossguard is designed like a sword's, and the leather wrapped grip of wood tapers at the pommel like a bottleneck.
With its long, narrow blade, the Bohemian rapier is a flexible thrust weapon, whereas for blows it is very limited. Civilians especially carried these blades in the 16th and 17th centuries as a status symbol, for self defense and for dueling.
The included leather scabbard features a wide, richly decorated chape and throat in floral pattern.
