With distinctive Neapolitan rope twist grip, a fighting, not a dress (for show) rapier for sure.
The massive 40 inch blade is rust pitted both sides along the entire length, but is still sound. Fein traces of inscriptions to the center fuller just visible. Blade firm in hilt. Original rope twist grip is well aged but sound enough. The hilt / guard actually good for age, some light pitting here and there but nothing too serious.
