Handmade Swords - “St. Petersburg” Rapier

  • Maker & Copyright: Mezhov
  • Materials: steel, damascus, silver, sapphires
  • Technics: forging, tapping, welding, soldering, fretwork, casting, etching, jewel fastener, greening, blue-ing, nickel-plating

The rapier reproduces the military beginning  and embodies the synthesis of the culture, art, and history of the city’s name it carries. The handle consists of a cup hilt made in form of Peter and Paul’s Fortress - starting point of city history - with Saint Andrew’s Cross inside.

The crosspiece is a cannon - symbol of military power; bail - none other than lyre - muse of city’s art while the classic column symbolize the architectural beginnings. The mosaic Damascus screw crowns the sword’s hilt. On the sheath’s orifice stays is a lion with a ring in his mouth - symbol of guard.
