Toward the end of the 17th century, a more sophisticated, shorter and lighter version of the rapier emerged as the tool of choice for personal carry and defense - the Small Sword. Its stiff, lightweight blade was forged in a triangular cross section, and the hilt was both simple and smartly functional, consisting of no more than an elliptical plate, or two shells, and a knuckle guard.
Cold Steel®'s modern version duplicates the best features of many historical examples, but uses 1060 high carbon steel, heat-treated to a tough spring temper. The hilt features two shells with functional finger loops and a light, but exceptionally strong, knuckle guard. Each Small Sword also comes complete with an attractive leather scabbard with an intricately decorated throat and chape.
