Towards the end of the 16th century the advantage that point weapons had over bladed swords was becoming increasingly evident and led to a rise in the rapier being used for home defence. It could find weak points in opponents armour and was extremely accurate when used in the right hands. It was however too long of a blade to be used in the majority of homes so a lighter, shorter version was made.
This recreation by cold steel features a blade made from carbon steel to ensure it is extremely strong and stays razor sharp after use every use. The hilt is simple and smartly functional, consisting of no more than an elliptical plate, or two shells and a light knuckle guard.
Comes with a leather scabbard.
