The phrase Rapier Swords refers to the long bladed weapon with complex hilt used during the art of fencing, which began development during the Renaissance period and Rapier Swords began to make there appearance in history during the 15th century throughout many European countries. They were designed primarily as a cut and thrust weapon for self defense as well as for use in duels and became extremely fashionable among the wealthier classes when it became both socially and legally acceptable to carry in public. Rapier Swords had different names depending on the European country. These include the Foil in Britain, the Espada in Spain, the Spada in Italy and the Epee in France. Among the things they had in common was that they were generally thin, light, fast, and well balanced and each country developed there own unique and sometimes ornate hilts for these Rapier Swords. These ornate hilts included basket and wire and bell guard designs primarily used to protect the hand wielding the sword, but also served the secondary purpose of catching the opponents blade and potentially disarming him during the battle.
