Fencing Foil Rapier Sword // Visconti Grip
The Fencing Foil is a loose term for a type of slender, sharply pointed sword. This rapier is optimized to be a thrusting weapon, but can also be used for cutting or slashing. While some rapiers are only sharpened at the tip, this sword is sharpened throughout the length of the blade with a complex hilt to protect the hand.
Some historians classify the rapier as a type of broadsword or saber. This weapon was mainly used in Early Modern Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries. The purpose of the one handed sword, as opposed to the two handed longsword, was to use one hand for the sword and the other for use of another weapon such as a dagger or pistol. In this way, the rapier is akin to the gladius sword of Roman times.
