Dear friends,

Were these rapiers meant for combat? Thanks for your input.

Kind regards

Manouchehr,
The prevailing thought is that many wavy-bladed (flamberge, flambard) swords were used in combat, and they aren't limited to rapiers. Here is a thread that discusses flamberge blades.

Thank you very much Chad. Did you include the link? This is the same with wavy bladed shamshirs I inspected in Iranian museums. They are also fully functional.

Kind regards
