Ring Hilt with Shell Plates : Darkwood Armory, your source for historical fencing

My Christmas present arrived in time for my birthday (2008). This is a functional replica of a swept hilt rapier . Used for practicing Historical European Martial Arts. This one was custom made for me by Scott Wilson at Darkwood Armory. It is my design based on two historical examples (with valuable input from Scott). I was looking for a design I liked that would provide good hand protection when blocking cuts.
