Marto Tizona Rapier (#577)

Marto Tizona Rapier  The cup hilt rapier in Spain made its appearance in the early 1650’s and remained popular until the early 1700’s. The rapier was generally used with a secondary defensive weapon, such as a main gauche, or parrying dagger, which while  often decorated  in similar fashion to their companion rapier, it was by no means unusual to have a “mismatched” set of rapier and dagger. Much lighter than the broadsword of medieval times, the rapier brought about a whole new style of swordplay and a proliferation of fencing schools. The rapier marked the earliest beginnings of fencing as a sport.
