Cut and Thrust Swords

Offering a middle ground between an arming sword and a rapier, cut and thrust swords feature Renaissance-style hilts with thicker blades than rapiers and a sharp taper. Various kinds of Renaissance swords, such as field swords and side swords, can be labeled cut and thrust blades. These single handed swords were popular during the 16th and 17th centuries, evolving from the medieval knightly sword. They provided a nimble wielding experience similar to a rapier while possessing the strength to be used for cutting and combat.
