#1 Epee Fencing Swords for Olympic-style Competition
Tim Morehouse, owner and Olympic Champion, designed our epee fencing swords for ultimate comfort, weight, and agility.
The epee (pronounced EPP-pay, which means “sword” in French) is one of the three weapons used in fencing. The sword was first introduced into Olympic fencing in 1900 and has been part of the Games ever since. It is a thrusting weapon, meaning that you score points by touching your opponent with the tip of your sword.
Touches count all over the entire body in valid target areas, creating the sense of a true-to-life duel. The epee is the heaviest and longest of the three fencing swords and is the only one in which both hands can grip the sword. This sword has a larger guard, which protects the hand, and a stiff blade. This design makes it well-suited for precision fencing, and epee fencers are often known for their ability to make small, elegant movements.
While epee fencing can be practiced with any type of sword, competitive epee fencers typically use a specially designed epee that meets certain weight and size requirements. Whether you're interested in competing at the highest level or simply enjoy the challenge of this unique sport, epee fencing is a great way to get involved in the world of swordsmanship.
