The Flamberge is a French word that means Flamboyant. The Flamberge is a sword that is typically a rapier but a long sword as well. The Flamberge sword has a wavy blade that is to aid in parring or chopping up pikes or spears. The Flamberge is also called Flambards, large claymores and Flammards. The Flamberge sword is of Germanic or Swedish descent starting around the 13th century. The area between the hilt and blade on the Flamberge sword was used for thrusting much like a spear. Flamberge was also the name of a sword borne by Charlemagne and Renaud de Montauban. It was forged by the smith Galas, and was one of nine blades shattered by Olivier’s sword, Hauteclere. The Flamberge looked fashionable as well as deadly because it was believed to inflict a painful deadly wound to an individual.
