Long Description

This cut-and-thrust sword seems to be something of a compromise between a rapier and a traditional cutting sword. It has a rather narrow blade, but wider in profile and thinner in cross-section than a rapier to preserve its cutting ability. It has a complex hilt, with forward- and back-swept quillons and a knucklebow, and finger rings alongside the ricasso. If a long sword is too old-fashioned or uncivilised, but a rapier too frilly and fancy, this might be the sword for you.

Appraises As

The sidesword is about three and a half feet long and a couple of inches wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type sword.
