In-Game Description

A small rapier.
Rapiers have a narrow attack range but deal heavy damage. They work well against metal armor and hard scales but are easily parried and have difficulty breaking enemies' guard.
The wielder of a rapier can attack with a shield raised, so it's better to use it to parry than block attacks while in the left hand.
