I’ve been hunting for a good rapier, a fencing off hand would be handy as well… if anyone knows of a good freebie in that vein, a link would be awesome!

Moved to the Commons as it is a request for, not an offer of, a freebie

It sounds like you are looking for a modern sports oriented rapier and not a historic killing people type. Is that correct?

If you don’t mind it not being free, there’s:

http://www.daz3d.com/shop/dangerous/  <- Includes a cup-hilted rapier

http://www.daz3d.com/shop/leon-di-castiglia/ <—Includes a nearly court-sword shaped rapier

http://www.daz3d.com/shop/rapiers-of-legend/  <- Used to be a freebie, includes four fantasy-styled rapiers.

There’s probably several more in the store, but that’s what I saw in a quick search.

Yeah, Rapiers of Legend is rather in tune with what I’m looking for on the rapier end… something with nice swept quillions. On the ‘what’s in the store’ front, yeah, there are several, just not in my budget at the moment. For the right V4 set that included a rapier, I might pry the purse strings loose, but otherwise, hard to justify the expense.

In terms of fencing off hand, I’m hunting for a parrying dagger… Main-gauche, trident dagger….

How about this one, free from Sharecg (after free registration):-

This is exactly what I’ve been looking for in this category! I know about “Rapiers of Legend” and found out via Google that it used to be free, but not any longer. This will do very nicely until I can get the other item.
