During the Baroque era, this civilian weapon, known as the Degen, developed.
From the mid-17th century it gradually replaced the rapier, as there was a need for lighter and less bulky weapons such as the rapier.
This is due to increased population growth and the related shortage of space during this period.
The sword was mostly led by members of the upper social class.
This replica of the civilian sword has a blade made of EN45 spring steel with triangular cross section, which is not sharpened.
The parrying element and the curved handguard are made of brass, with a wooden handle, which is wrapped in brass wire.
The scabbard is made of leather-wrapped wood, with fittings and brass support rings and a hook for attaching the scabbard to a belt.
