All six of these blades are from Zen Warrior Armory, who were kind enough to consider LANCE’s non-profit status and give us a sweet discount on the swords plus an equipment bag to store them in! Thank you, Zen Warrior Armory!
Here’s the spec breakdown of the new weapons. We’ve got two swept hilt rapiers, one 30in length and one 33in length. Then we’ve got four cup hilt rapiers, two 30in length and two 33in length. In the picture at left, the swept hilt rapiers are the ones on either end, and the cup hilt rapiers are the four blades in the middle.
The variance in length and style should accommodate just about anybody who wants to take the Rapier Workshop currently being developed by the Training Committee. That means that whether or not you’ve already got a rapier of your own, you’ve got a brand new workshop to look forward to once we’re all allowed out of the house again!
Keep in mind that you will need to have completed Basic Unarmed and Basic Sword as well as the Advanced Sword Workshop to be eligible for the Rapier Workshop. If you’re not sure that you meet the requirements to take the Rapier Workshop, reach out to our Training Committee Chair AJ Harrett at firstname.lastname@example.org!
