A flame-bladed sword or wave-bladed sword has a characteristically undulating style of blade. The wave in the blade is often considered to contribute a flame-like quality to the appearance of a sword. While largely decorative, some attributes of the waved blade were useful in combat.
It may have been the case that the wave-shaped edges were more useful for attacking the wooden shaft of an opponent's pike, cutting off the tip and thus rendering the pike relatively harmless. It is not known if the undulating blades on these weapons imparts a significantly greater or lesser ability to cut, slice, or thrust against a human target. Similarly, they do not appear to especially weaken or strengthen the weapon. However, a sword with a flamed or scalloped blade has a serrated blade with an increased cutting surface and a reduced overall mass. It is likely that there was some practical reason for this blade shape which was difficult to forge, and many functional true two-handed swords were forged with at least part of the blade made in this undulating style. Its fashionable and eye-catching appearance, however, did lead to its use on larger, heavier ceremonial Paradeschwerter, or "parade swords".
The term flamberge, meaning "flame blade", is an undulating blade found on both long blades and rapiers. When parrying with such a sword, unpleasant vibrations may be transmitted into the attacker's blade. These vibrations caused the blades to slow contact with each other, as additional friction was encountered with each wave.
