The Side Sword was a military sword of the 16th and 17th century Renaissance period that also achieved popularity among civilians, due to its relatively light weight and quickness. Historically, it was an evolved Arming Sword from the medieval period, and a precursor to the Rapier, though it continued to be popular and was not superseded by the Rapier for some considerable time. It also had an advantage over the rapier, in having the ability to cut efficiently as well as thrust and could be used on a mix of armored and unarmored opponents that was prevalent during this tumultuous era. Based on an original German sword of this type, this sword is well balanced an feels exceptional in the hand. The “swept” hilt affords excellent hand protection and the blade geometry makes for outstanding performance in both the cut and the thrust.
