Are they not designed for a similar purpose?

Obviously the different styles are designed to adhere to the different forms of combat, but they still serve the same purpose of protecting the wielder's hand(s) and/or catching the opponents blade.

Attempting to marginalize my argument won't change the fact that it's true.

I refuse to call that a sabre (I googled it). Looks exactly like a rapier, and not a sabre. A sabre is bent, and has been since the saracens started using it hundreds, if not a thousand, years ago. I remember when I read Marco Polo he referred to them using a sabre which was bent. A sabre is designed to slash at opponents, like a sword, and therefore the curve helps to slice through the flesh and bring more power to the strike. Yes, it probably helped the cavalry as well. Oxford dictionary even defines a sabre a: "A heavy cavalry sword with a curved blade and a single cutting edge."

A rapier on the other hand was used much like fencing works today, with "stabbing".
