Rapiers and Basket-Hilted Swords

A rapier is a slender, sharply pointed sword, ideally used for thrusting attacks, used mainly in Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries. The word “rapier” generally refers to a relatively long-bladed sword characterized by a complex hilt which is constructed to provide protection for the hand wielding it. While the blade might be broad enough to cut to some degree, the long thin blade lends itself to thrusting.
