Does anyone know which company or individual made the following two rapiers? Apparently, on one of the swords, there is an image of a horse on the ricasso. Supposedly, also, the edges are sharp on both blades.

They both look like Hanwei pieces to me. The first is a Hanwei bone handled swept hilt rapier SH1092. The other appears to be Hanwei's practical rapier (they may have made a sharp version earlier on).
I have a cunning plan Mr. B.

CAS Hanwei bone hilt rapier(discontinued) and Practical Rapier respectively. The latter (in stock configuration) has a button tip and unsharpened edges for SCA/HEMA rapier and the former has unsharpened edges but a sharpened tip.

Yep, id's above correct. Owned them both at one time. Bit lumpy and ungainly but def ok for the money.
