For the cost, it’s cool to have. Ya the scabbard is crappy. The blade is flimsy. But holding it in your hand feels really very cool! The engraving is a very nice touch! A Princess Bride type sword!
I really liked the look of the sword as the wire-basket hilt and rapier style matched my intended persona of a Musketeer, but I was somewhat worried about the negative reviews I had seen. I did note that none of the negative reviews were too recent so I took the plunge and ordered one with my name engraved on the blade. I was very pleased with it when it came in. No defects at all - tight, straight blade, wire-wrapping on handle, and leather scabbard were all in pristine condition as expected. The free knife that was thrown in was nice too - I'll definitely return here for any of my replica weapon needs.
When I first received this sword I was not impressed. The quality was poor and it looked like no thought was put into it. My first problem with it was the handle, the wire wrap felt like it was barbed wired and the guard rattled and felt like it would disconect anytime. The guard felt like it was spray painted and looked just awful. Then there was the problem with the blade, the blade was off center when connecting to the handle which made it very crooked and the center of the blade was bent and the blade clearly showed it leaving a black bend mark. The scaberd was all twisted and the metal easily slipped off, it almost looked like it was done by less than a novice. All in all, it was a very disappointing buy.

This sword is the bomb!Gorgeous indeed. Just saw 3 musketeers. I now see why
evert one kept calling it a 3 musketeers sword. Oh if you guys have an extra scabbard laying around i will by it. As the that came with it had a bent tip and is a little long..But great sword.5 STARS
The sword is good, but that scabbard is so tight, you have to pull very hard to get the sword out.
excellent,very beautiful sword. the wire wrap could use a little more length to it. but nothing that would cause any discomfort when cos-playing as a pirate or Frenchmen. over all a beautiful piece
Can you guys make hand forged replicas of the rapiers from princess bride please I'm looking for one to get my sister since I'm teaching her all the lessons I took back when I was a fencer. Plus it's her favorite movie.
Response: We'll see what we can do!
I bought this sword some time ago and just now writing the review on it. What can I say This rapier was my first sword that I bought. The reason being I wanted a replica just like in three musketeers. It looks great
This is a really beautiful sword. I presented this sword to my best friend at his wedding. I had his military service engraved on this sword with the US Army medalian attached to the sheath. So this made an incredible gift and I would recommend this sword to anyone whose looking for something elegant and beautiful.
I have waited three years for my rapier and finally after I have one and going to get one to match it. it balance is good the weight is heavier than I thought it would be and that makes it really good . I can spare with a friend after getting the matching one. The fame of the Rapier Sword ... well the name speaks for itself. I would recommend the Rapier to collectors and others who would like a piece of history and for the fun of learning how to use a real sword . Thanks BUDK .
Kudos to the BUDK Customer Service Team, and especially the "Lead Representative". I received the replacement for the original damaged Rapier, and this one is EXCELLENT! The blade is as straight as an arrow, and the spiral guard is positioned nicely. Very nice. I am proud to display this piece. Note to other customers: NEVER "go away mad"...ALWAYS call BudK Customer Service...they will do everything they can for you.
I received this sword as a Christmas gift, and upon opening the box and taking out the sword, I noticed the blade had a bend to it near the tip. I also noticed 'burr' lines on each one of the guard wirings. No part of the guard seemed to be finished or buffed. The guard was also out of alignment with the pommel. VERY poor quality for the price. Even though this is a 'display' piece, I noticed that the blade is loose in the guard. I would expect this from a $20 piece, but NOT for $80 plus extra shipping cost. I am very seriously considering returning this item. Not the level of QUALITY I usually have from BudK.
Iâ€™m giving it 4/5 because itâ€™s a little bit hard to judge. The sword itself is awesome. I wanted something like this after watching films like â€œThe 3 Musketeersâ€ (the ones before the 2011 version) and â€œThe Man in the Iron Maskâ€ which is the same thing I guess.Anyway, this is the third real sword that I have bought from this site. The other two were â€œTiger Sand Garden Samurai Swordâ€ and â€œSamurai Special-Bamboo Full Tang High Carbon Steelâ€.So this Rapier is very different. Iâ€™m finding it hard to store it because I donâ€™t want to put stress on the blade which is thin, but it is Rapier.Overall, itâ€™s a GREAT sword. But if youâ€™re like me who collects Samurai swords, expect something different when you get this. Also be mindful of where youâ€™re going to put it.
I too had a loose blade in the handle. I disassembled it and applied pliers and got rid of the noice and looseness. I had to take a round and flat file to many of the weld joints on the grip basket. This off course took off the crome plating in spots but better that than the rough edges. It looks a bit worn but it looks good. The blade is very nice. The price was excellent. The sheath turned out to be pliable when the blade is removed. Looks whimpy... but then again... during many Ren faires the blades are not to be drawn in public. so the issue cannot be seen. IF one wants a Ren faire rapier... and you don't mind a little work... this one is good for the price.
So I was excited to see this blade up close and personal, and my excitement was not in vain. This is a beautiful peace of work, this is my best purchase by far. There are some signs of wielding, but the sheer beauty of this sword out weighs all of that... This is my second sword from trueswords, and I will be back to purchase more...
Better than expected. Beautiful piece to round out my collection of some 130 knives swords and daggers. My only problem is I've purchased most of what I like. Wish there were more new items to choose from. Have ordered from five major outlets, and BudK is the best out there in prices, service, and selection. Thanks BudK for all of your super deals.
Elegant and beautiful! However, there are obvious signs of welding on the hilt guard, and this makes it look poorly crafted on closer inspection.
I love it! Beautiful elegant great for just carrying or practicing I can't stop ordering stuff from u guys. So many great swords
This is an estoc sword, meaning edge-less. The hilt is unstable and the blade bends easily. The sheath is also flimsy. Still a good sword.
when i bought this i was expecting a piece of crap because had read all the reviews. When it came in the mail i opened it up and could not have been more happier. it looks just like the rapiers used in the 1993 muskateers movie. i fell in love with this sword its everything you could ask for. FYI theres a dagger that goes with the sword for 18 bucs. i will definately be buying from here again
