Ambidextrous Renaissance Rapier 17th Century 

Widely regarded as a civilian weapon the rapier was carried for over two hundred years in one form or another and you would simply feel undressed if you did not have one on your side. The blade lengths did vary but three feet was about the norm. When at the English court gentlemen began a “one up man ship” game on the length of their rapiers Queen Elizabeth ordered the palace guard to break off any blades longer than three feet saying “enough was enough.”
As the rapier began to be more prevalent a large number of Schools of Fence sprang up all across Europe. When stating the rapier was a civilian weapon that speeches to the fact that the blade was generally thin in width and too light to deliver a deadly cut even if the blade was sharp. This being the case the rapiers is regarded as a “point only” weapon and that was how the varying schools of use evolved. Even so the Rapier was deadly in the hands of a skilled user. All so the complex hilts that were developed were such good hand protection they came into wide use on military swords, the blade simply being wide and heavy enough to deliver a good cut.
