The word "rapier" is a difficult one to truly define in modern terms. A rapier is a long, slender blade intended primarily for the thrust, and generally with some degree of hand protection, and seen primarily in the 16th and 17th centuries.
Most of us in the modern world would recognize the word "rapier". Terms like "rapier wit" or "rapier tongue" imply quick and sharp responses, alluding to this Renaissance weapon of the duelling gentleman. There are many who have been enraptured by the romantic tales of The Three Musketeers or seen the sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic swordplay in Shakespeare.
