Here is something that I thought you might like to see...

Here is a special item for collectors -- Jody's personal rapier and dagger set.

This set was much admired when Jody wore it at various RenFaires around California.

Made in 1995 for his own use, this hand-made set features:

- deeply hollow-ground, mirror-polished blades
- hand-welded and blackened swept-hilt guard on the rapier
- hand-welded and blackened ring guard on the dagger
- decorative pin-work on the grips
- a bloodstone set into the quillon block of the rapier
- comes complete with scabbards
- signed certificate of authenticity


This historic one-of-a-kind set is available to serious collectors only.

We are doing a private auction on this - email, PM, or call if you are interested. Big Grin

Jody sold them a number of years ago to a friend, who has since traded them in to us. Jody typically likes to make himself a new set for his costume every couple of years or so, though this set was one of his favorites.

Best,

I can see why; that is some beautiful work on the guard of the rapier Big Grin . I especially like the bloodstone set in the quillons block. Thanks Howy Happy

I've always liked this set. Something about it just grabs you hard and doesn't let go.

Should fetch a very pretty penny from the looks of the set. I can see wh people always admired them.

They sure are beautiful. Not really my favorite time period, but I can understand why everyone wants them.
