This is a John Barnett designed Museum-Quality Replica Pappenheimer Rapier, the Rapier became the weapon of choice for the civilian gentry but the military never fully adopted it excpet as a dress sword. However, it was obvious the hand protection of the new sword afforded was something that would be useful in battle. Since armour was in decline at this point, blades could be slimmer so sword designers conjured up a new idea, a rapier style guard with a blade somewhere between a rapier and a cutting sword. The Pappenheimer Rapier was the choice of many, it was light, flexible, capable of both cut and thrust and yet not too heavy for good point work.
