100% Cuts of Useful Information
Although the term rapier
has become synonymous with any narrow-bladed sword
(particularly those with fancy hilts), the term rapier
actually applied to only a select few types of swords
. Rapiers were narrow (usually one and a quarter inches wide), quite long, fairly heavy, and usually had only a slight edge on them. The extremely long length of the rapiers made them a bit heavy and cumbersome, not at all the Errol Flynn or Zorro-type small-swords
that most people think of.
