Rapier Description

The rapier sword is a loose term for a type of slender, sharply pointed sword. The rapier is optimized to be a thrusting weapon, but can also be used for cutting or slashing. While some rapiers are only sharpened at the tip, this rapier is sharpened throughout the length of the sword.  Rapiers have a complex hilt to protect the hand.  Some historians classify the rapier as a type of broadsword or saber.  This weapon was mainly used in Early Modern Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries.  The purpose of the one handed sword, as opposed to the two handed longsword, was to use one hand for the sword and the other for use of another weapon such as a dagger or pistol.  In this way, the rapier is akin to the gladius sword of Roman times where foot soldiers used the short gladius in one hand with a shield on the other.  

Blade Materials

This rapier sword is made from 1095 steel which accurately matches the very hard steel content of ancient rapier swords. Currently, 1095 steel is the highest carbon steel commonly used in swords. It has a carbon level of .95% which is one of the highest carbon levels for any type of steel. The most common high carbon swords are 1045 steel which only have .45% carbon content in the steel. 1095 steel is known for its ability to maintain an edge and is an incredibly hard steel. 1095 steel typically has a hardness of 56-58 HRC. While lacking flexibility, the steel excels at remaining sharp even through high impact collisions and can easily be resharpened.
