The Side Sword was a military sword of the 16th and 17th century Renaissance period that also achieved popularity among civilians, due to its relatively light weight and quickness.
It also had an advantage over its contemporary, the rapier, in having the ability to cut efficiently as well as thrust.
Side swords were often the weapon of choice for sword and buckler fighting.
Paul Chen's side sword, based on a German original, is a beautifully proportioned piece that balances very well.
The swept hilt affords excellent hand protection and the blade geometry makes for outstanding performance in both the cut and the thrust.
