Weight is based on UPS Dimensional Weight rules.

  • The advantage of the sword point over the edge became increasingly evident by the end of the 16th century.
  • The Rapier, with its long, elegantly thin profile which emphasized its point, became the popular choice in civilian self-defense.
  • It was however a somewhat unwieldy weapon especially when it was used in narrow, crowded streets and alleyways.
  • Eventually a more sophisticated, shorter and lighter version emerged that by the end of the 17th century had evolved into an entirely new weapon, the Small Sword.
  • Civilians carried it for as long as swords remained an integral part of fashionable dress. Its primary advantage was its stiff, lightweight blade which was forged in a triangular cross section.
  • It was a highly lethal weapon, ideal for thrusting, and hung conveniently from a sash, baldric, or belt.
  • The hilt (compared to the Rapier's) was simple and smartly functional, consisting of no more than an elliptical plate, or two shells and a light knuckle guard.
  • The Cold Steel Small Sword duplicates the original model in weight, balance, triangular cross section, and deadly sharp point, but uses modern materials like 1055 Carbon steel, heat treated to a tough spring temper.
  • The hilt features two shells with functional finger loops and a light, but strong, knuckle guard.
  • Perfectly balanced and weighing only 22 ounces, the Small Sword comes complete with an attractive leather scabbard that features an intricately decorated throat and chape.
