This hilt-and-point sword dance has been recorded mainly in Yorkshire. It is related to the rapper sword dance of Northumberland and Durham, but the character is fundamentally different as rigid metal or wooden swords are used, rather than the flexible spring steel rappers used by its northern relation.
