RAPIER SWORD

I remember a type of sword known as the rapier, which was the weapon of choice for the Three Musketeers. Unlike the longsword or greatsword, the rapier relied on skill, speed, and precision rather than strength and power. I used to take fencing classes so I have a good idea on how the rapier is used. I am thinking of including the rapier in my fantasy book and make it the weapon of choice for a major character.
