Cavalier Rapier

Cold Steel®'s interpretation of this blade (which was named the Cavalier Rapier) features a sharp double-edged and needle-tipped blade which is decidedly shorter and lighter than a classic rapier, allowing for much more speed and agility. With a pierced tempered steel shell guard, rings, quillons and knuckle bow, it offers astonishingly good hand protection, while its wire-wrapped grip and counterbalancing pommel give great comfort and liveliness in-hand.

By the mid-1600's, dueling was at the height of its popularity. In fact, this trend for settling affairs of honor with steel reached such heights that King Louis XIII of France outlawed dueling for fear of losing too many of his important dignitaries to this dangerous pursuit!

Aristocratic noblemen saw it as their manly duty to defend their honor at sword-point, and as such began not only seeking out the knowledge and training imparted by specialist sword masters, but also exploring new types of weapon to help them gain a decisive edge. One particular sword began to gain popularity - a smaller, lighter and faster version of the rapier that was easier to carry and quicker in combat. A precursor to what would eventually become the Smallsword, referred to by many simply as the transitional rapier.

1055 High Carbon Steel

The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it's often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
