Weapon of the Day



Rapier

A narrow, long, straight bladed, double edged sword. The blade has a distinct fuller and tapers gently to a point. The hilt has a caged basket and, often elaborate, crossguard. The blade is designed for cutting and thrusting, though the thrusting aspect sees its greatest utility. The sword has an average length of 38” and weighs about 1lb.
