19th Century English Court Sword with scabbard

The small sword was the immediate predecessor of the French foil and its method of use which was developed into the techniques of the French classical school of fencing. Small swords were also used as status symbols and fashion accessories; for most of the 18th century anyone, civilian or military, with pretensions to gentlemanly status would have worn a small sword on a daily basis.
