The court sword, also known as the small sword, was a light, one-handed sword developed in France during the late Renaissance period.
The blade is designed for thrusting rather than slashing, owing its heritage to the longer and heavier rapier and leading to the development of the foil and then the épée, and also the French classical school of fencing.
