BudK Comes Through Reviewed by Ken Redding on Sep 26, 2017   5 out of 5

I really liked the look of the sword as the wire-basket hilt and rapier style matched my intended persona of a Musketeer, but I was somewhat worried about the negative reviews I had seen. I did note that none of the negative reviews were too recent so I took the plunge and ordered one with my name engraved on the blade. I was very pleased with it when it came in. No defects at all - tight, straight blade, wire-wrapping on handle, and leather scabbard were all in pristine condition as expected. The free knife that was thrown in was nice too - I'll definitely return here for any of my replica weapon needs.

Not My best buy. Reviewed by on Mar 27, 2016   5 out of 5

When I first received this sword I was not impressed. The quality was poor and it looked like no thought was put into it. My first problem with it was the handle, the wire wrap felt like it was barbed wired and the guard rattled and felt like it would disconect anytime. The guard felt like it was spray painted and looked just awful. Then there was the problem with the blade, the blade was off center when connecting to the handle which made it very crooked and the center of the blade was bent and the blade clearly showed it leaving a black bend mark. The scaberd was all twisted and the metal easily slipped off, it almost looked like it was done by less than a novice. All in all, it was a very disappointing buy.

Scabbard No Good Reviewed by Mark Krempl on Apr 08, 2015   3 out of 5

The sword is good, but that scabbard is so tight, you have to pull very hard to get the sword out.

Beautiful Sword Reviewed by Scott on Jun 16, 2014   5 out of 5

This is a really beautiful sword. I presented this sword to my best friend at his wedding. I had his military service engraved on this sword with the US Army medalian attached to the sheath. So this made an incredible gift and I would recommend this sword to anyone whose looking for something elegant and beautiful.

The point of my sword Reviewed by Manford Reed on Apr 28, 2014   5 out of 5

I have waited three years for my rapier and finally after I have one and going to get one to match it. it balance is good the weight is heavier than I thought it would be and that makes it really good . I can spare with a friend after getting the matching one. The fame of the Rapier Sword ... well the name speaks for itself. I would recommend the Rapier to collectors and others who would like a piece of history and for the fun of learning how to use a real sword . Thanks BUDK .

Replaced Rapier- EXCELLENT! Reviewed by Tom on Jan 17, 2014   5 out of 5

Kudos to the BUDK Customer Service Team, and especially the "Lead Representative". I received the replacement for the original damaged Rapier, and this one is EXCELLENT! The blade is as straight as an arrow, and the spiral guard is positioned nicely. Very nice. I am proud to display this piece. Note to other customers: NEVER "go away mad"...ALWAYS call BudK Customer Service...they will do everything they can for you.

Silver Rapier-POOR Quality Reviewed by Tom on Dec 28, 2013   1 out of 5

I received this sword as a Christmas gift, and upon opening the box and taking out the sword, I noticed the blade had a bend to it near the tip. I also noticed 'burr' lines on each one of the guard wirings. No part of the guard seemed to be finished or buffed. The guard was also out of alignment with the pommel. VERY poor quality for the price. Even though this is a 'display' piece, I noticed that the blade is loose in the guard. I would expect this from a $20 piece, but NOT for $80 plus extra shipping cost. I am very seriously considering returning this item. Not the level of QUALITY I usually have from BudK.

Silver Rapier Reviewed by Gary on Oct 08, 2013   3 out of 5

I too had a loose blade in the handle. I disassembled it and applied pliers and got rid of the noice and looseness. I had to take a round and flat file to many of the weld joints on the grip basket. This off course took off the crome plating in spots but better that than the rough edges. It looks a bit worn but it looks good. The blade is very nice. The price was excellent. The sheath turned out to be pliable when the blade is removed. Looks whimpy... but then again... during many Ren faires the blades are not to be drawn in public. so the issue cannot be seen. IF one wants a Ren faire rapier... and you don't mind a little work... this one is good for the price.

Silver Rapier Reviewed by con on Feb 07, 2013   5 out of 5

Better than expected. Beautiful piece to round out my collection of some 130 knives swords and daggers. My only problem is I've purchased most of what I like. Wish there were more new items to choose from. Have ordered from five major outlets, and BudK is the best out there in prices, service, and selection. Thanks BudK for all of your super deals.

Silver Rapier Reviewed by DennisP on Feb 09, 2012   4 out of 5

I ordered two of the silver Rapiers to mount on a wall plaque that I made. The Rapiers seem to be well made except that one squeaks when I move it around. Since I am mounting it on the wall that squeakiness doesn't matter. The hand guard is a bit bigger then I expected, but it looks nice on the wall and feels very nice in the hand. I would very much so recommend this sword to others and other swords from BudK. This is the second type of sword I have ordered from Budk and will be a repeat customer.
