The Rapier is a very thin sword, most effective for piercing. It requires an Attack level of 40 to wield. Its speed is that of a shortsword. It was used by Gentleman Mallard until his disappearance at sea. The sword was later found by Smith of Mos Le'Harmless, who will sell it to players for 25,600 coins, so you need to complete Cabin Fever first.
To be able to understand Smith and purchase the rapier, the player must either have a Book o' piracy in their inventory or have completed the Rocking Out quest. Talk to Smith and select the cutlasses option in the dialogue box.

- The 'Rapier' once had the stab/slash bonuses switched; but on 29 December 2008, the slash bonuses had been replaced with the current stab bonuses.
- This is the signature weapon of Harrallak Menarous.
