Rapier Fencing Swords

The Rapier Fencing Sword was used during the sport of fencing which has existed since ancient Egypt. Many cultures in England, Italy, France and Spain developed their own forms of sword fighting throughout the centuries. The first weapon is the Rapier Fencing Sword. It was a 16th century sword with an edged, thick blade used primarily as a thrusting weapon. Sometimes the rapier sword had ornate hilts, used to catch an opponent’s blade while the off hand used another weapon to finish the fight, similar to our rapier. It had been used in military battle, but it became more popular for civilians to use for self-defense.
