I am not sure if this is the right forum, but here goes. My question conserns Leon Paul rapier blades and other "historic" equipment. I have ordered two rapier blades from Leon Paul fencing equipment and need your view of his products. This shop also sells Theatre swords (traditional epee) that are not historically correct looking, but would do fine for a practise weapon. Any comments about these?

My main interest in historical weapons are military sabers and backswords and rapiers/smallswords as civilian weapons. I have started epee fencing some time ago, and i do also singlestick training. I have also trained escrima (still do occasionally) but i am drifting more towards western arts now.
