Premiere Fencing Swords for Olympic-style Competition
Your foil fencing sword and épée fencing sword are attached to handles with screws while your sabre fencing swords have a socket that plugs into the handle. You can purchase fencing swords individually, but you can also opt to buy complete starter sets. These sets generally include a jacket, glove, mask, weapon, and body cord. When purchasing equipment, it is essential to buy from a reputable dealer like Morehouse Fencing Gear — we provide sizing guidelines and often recommend that you speak with your coaching staff if you need advice on sizing and care of the equipment.
When weighing which fencing sword you will be utilizing, remember that each style demands a different weapon. With foil fencing swords, you use a maximum weight of 500 grams to hit the tip of the blade to the target area, the torso.
With épée fencing swords, you use a top weight of 775 grams as a thrusting sword. This style of match uses the tip of the blade to hit the target, which is the entire body.
With saber fencing swords, they are both cutting and thrusting swords at 500 grams max. This is the only weapon in which you use the entire blade to score, with a target of the upper half of the body, which is protected by a lamé, the face mask, and neck bib.
