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.

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

Abraham Lincoln

How ironic that he, of all people, would say such a thing!
