Based on models of 17th century swept-hilt rapiers of Italian ancestry, the Torino Main Gauche exhibits the classic straight crossguard styling popular in this part of Europe.
The main gauches have now been redesigned to provide lighter, better balanced pieces than earlier models. The hilts are now of the same size as the museum pieces on which they are based, providing an authentic feel in the user's hand. All of the main gauche blades are interchangeable with the Practical blades, which are designed for safety in rapier sparring. This gives the user a wide choice of swept hilt styles for use with both live and Practical blades.
