Well, you'd need to talk to artikid about that one - he's got the armor supplement.
I think Rapier is fine (especially with a small note that it encompasses "quick fencing-type weapons"). I think the sabre-type weapons (as you mention) are pretty much either Longswords or Shortswords, only having a single edge rather that both sides... but functionally for the rules, the same as L.Sword/Short... case in point, Scimitar is mentioned on same entry as Long Sword.
heavy sabres are basically scimitars - curved, slashing weapon (usually with a little edging on the back to keep a good thrusting point). Rapier has a bit of edging at the tip, but is really a thrusting (piercing) weapon. I'd like to differentiate the slashing quick blades from the hacking cutlass blades.

Fencing blades, or maybe "quick blades" which I just came up with typing this up.

Eh. Implied repetition. How about "The Armory" or some such?

BTW: Here all curved, single edge, medium and bigger weapons all called collectively Sabers.
All straight, single edge, medium and bigger weapons are called collectively Blades.
All straight, double edge, medium and bigger weapons are called collectively Swords.
All short, edged weapons are called collectively Knives.

Reviewing content, should we include siege engines here (as a separate section, obviously)

"The Armory: Weapons" works for me. The Armory: Equipment is workable, but I think it will break down as we get into the other supplements (The Armory: Livestock is pushing it).

I was thinking "Armory" for weapons and armor, not realizing you had them separated. Guess I should pay attention. "Arsenal" for weapons sounds good.

I'd dropped the armor side as Artikid has been working on that side of the house. I don't think we need another round of the Ranger debacle.

Okay, here's the latest and greatest. There's some section breaks that are a bit odd, but I didn't want to mess up the tables quite yet.

Have a look-see.

I'll probably want to toss a couple bits of artwork in there at some point.
