    Gauging interest in doing a reproduction of the Three Musketeers' rapier from the 1993 Disney film:

    171269_zps4a7f8634.jpg
    171270_zpse9e5c65a.jpg

    I'm estimating the price would be under well under $300, including shipping. If there is enough interest for the scabbard and frog, I could look at doing the entire set. When you post your interest, let me know if you want just the sword, sword and scabbard or sword, scabbard and frog.

    As with my other swords, the blade would be tempered carbon steel and the hilt would most likely be silver-plated brass, with black leather handle.

    Kind regards,
    Magnoli

    I'm in for an entire set. If not possible, sword and scabbard at least.

    Actually will the hilt be ambitious or just right handed? I am left handed and plan to carry the sword at faire.

    The design is right handed (the cross being on the top of the hilt when held that way) but as with any rapier, it can be used either way.

    Yes but most rapiers offer less protection on one side. I'm pending till better pictures of both sides.

    One of the curses of being a southpaw

    The main shape of this sword is a standard swept hilt, so the left side will basically look like this one:

    What do you think would be used for the blue inlay on the cross, the fleur-de-le(sp?) just above the grip, and the inlay on pommel?

    I'm good with that, I was curious about it when I started thinking about what they did for the actual props.

    Wrong movie, but hopefully that one comes to fruition too!

    Speaking of which...Indy, if the Inigo ever comes through would it be possible for Westley's Dread Pirate Roberts, sword to follow?

    If there is enough interest to do Westley's sword, we'd certainly look at doing it.

    Ok, let's wait on that Westley sword for now... as for the Inigo Montoya sword, we're taking it slow due to the amount of detailing.

    I have liked that rapier since the movie came out. But I would want to carry it. That it is right handed and I'm not will bother me. I own left and right handed rapiers and I should have thought about that fact before expressing interest. You do very good work, but remove me from the list.

    I would be interested in the full set. Would it be possible to get a blue leather wrap on the handle instead of black?

    Little late maybe...but, it is still an ambidextrous sword. Kiefer uses his and Porthos'(in his left hand) I believe during the final battle in the courtyard and his own in his left after being injured by Rochewort. However, I can see the blue inlay cross makes it seem "Righties Only".

    I suppose it's possible... as long as remember the custom request before the run is complete.

    I fight right and left handed using a swept hilt rapier as shown above and never really notice that the left hand is any less protected than the right.

    Thank you for helping make my point, Indy! It may be too late, but hopefully we can get him to rejoin the Musketeer ranks;)

    The factory isn't comfortable doing this without a physical sample, so we're looking at prototyping one ourselves.

    Right now, I can't say as we have no definite timeframe or plan of attack. I'm now working out the best way to prototype this...

    Oh no, how can this happen, I love both Princess bride and Three Musketeers, If I bought into this, afterward I would have to take care of something UGLY!!!:D
    I would love to get this but I have too much to commit to at the moment. Unless however you need an Electrician to do some work for you?

    I'll put you on the list... but at the moment, this project is on hold as we need to produce the sample in-house and don't have the manpower for it. The factory is ready to roll on this, but won't proceed without a sample to copy.

    three musketeers.jpg 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg rapier.jpg There are Hanwei swept hilt rapiers that are nearly bang on as far as the hand guard goes. All that's needed is just a little tweeking and add the Musketeers symbol on the guard. Just by looking at my Hanwei sword I can tell its pretty close in design. I'll see if I can find a pic of the same sword. Here is a pic of the same sword that I own, the "guard" looks very close to the one used in the movie. I'm sure it would be perfect as a base model. Also found a few nice snaps of a screen used one. Threemusketeers.jpg

    The leather assembly that attaches to your belt to hold your sword is the frog.

    im in for one, since its technically the same style just gold is it possible to do the D'artagnan Chris O'Donnell version.
