I'm looking to purchase an older model of rapier from Museum Replicas which they called the German Rapier. Here're a couple images that Stephen Fisher took of his (before and after he stripped the black off of the hilt).

I've recently purchased the very one that was in that picture, but after Sean Flynt's handyman instincts had their way with it (that sword has gotten around!), and I realized it would make a wonderful practice rapier as a loaner for students after being blunted. However, I like the modifications Sean did to my particular rapier, so I'd rather use another one, leaving my current one as it is.

I'd prefer not to spend too much on this. The sword needs to be in top functional condition, but I don't care that much about the aesthetic condition. Scratchs and scuffs don't bother me, nor do I care about the scabbard, which I won't even be using. Naturally, though, the worse the condition, the less I'd want to pay for it, so pricing will depend on the individual sword.

If you have one you're willing to sell, shoot me a PM.

Bumping this to the top. I'd really prefer not to blunt the one I got from Sean that he has modified, but if no one else has one they'd be willing to sell, then I might just do so.

Bump. I'll give this another week, and if there isn't anything, I'm going to blunt my current one.
