Pappenheimer Rapier
The Pappenheimer Rapier: With its dashing good looks, the Rapier became the weapon of choice for the civilian gentry, but the military never fully adopted it except as a dress sword. However, it was obvious that the hand protection the new sword afforded was something that would be useful in battle. Since armor was in decline, blades could be slimmer. Sword designers conjured up a magic combination - a rapier style guard with a blade somewhere between a rapier and a cutting sword.

The sword rapier became the sword of choice for most of the military. It was carried by many combatants in the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648 AD). The Pappenheimer Rapier was the choice of many - light, flexible, capable of both cut and thrust and yet not too heavy for good point work.
