Sword, Rapier: A slim, light sword, used primarily for fencing. It is almost as exclusively a thrusting weapon, rather than a slashing weapon. This weapon's statistics can also be used for other fencing swords, such as the epee, foil, and fencing saber. If the rapier comes equipped with a hilt guard, to protect the wielder's hand, it adds +1 to soak if used to block.
