Ok, first we have to decide what you mean by "schlager".

In the SCA we often refer to all the fencing blades heavier than epee/foil 
as schlagers. However, that term is not technically correct. An actual 
schlager blade is different from a practice rapier blade.

Last I heard Hanwei only made practice rapier blades, NOT schlagers.

If there is a new brand of schlager blade out there it needs to be reviewed 
by the Deputy Society Marshal for Rapier  (DSMR) before it is legal 

If the blade of which you speak is a practice rapier then if it is a 
Hanwei, Scotty, Del Tin, TCA or Angus Trim it is ok. Otherwise it too will 
need to be reviewed by the DSMR.

Finally, even if approved by the DSMR it must still be legal in YOUR 

The quick way to find out if it is legal is to take the blade to your 
Kingdom Minister of Fence or one of his/her deputies and ask.
