Renaissance Swords & Rapiers

Renaissance swords were characterized by a compound hilt, narrow blade, and strong cross section. Their build made these swords ideal for the “cut and thrust” style and they were typically used by foot soldiers in the military. While it may be that Renaissance swords were generally lighter than their medieval counterparts, some big weapons were around too. For instance, the monstrous two-handed sword (e.g., the German Zweihander and the English Slaughter Sword) was historically a Renaissance weapon. Another popular sword was the rapier which featured a long and narrow blade and a hilt with a heavy cross-guard. The rapier was not used much in the military but gained a following among the civilians. They were later replaced by an even lighter weapon – the small-sword.
