Short swords are not a very commonly used weapon today, but once it was. 

It served as a primary and sometimes secondary fighting weapon for the warriors centuries ago!

A short sword is sometimes known as an arming sword. It was extremely popular during the Middle Ages when a knight had this sword hung from his belt. The original or the long sword was hung from his saddle.
