FENCING

Dueling with sword and dagger was only one of many forms of fencing that developed as civilian wear of swords made duels between unarmored opponents in non-military situations more common. By the turn of the sixteenth century, Italian fencing masters were renowned throughout Europe, and during the course of the century, as instruction in the art of fencing became a required part of a young nobleman's education, every self-respecting court in Europe sought the services of an Italian fencing master. It was not unusual for a young gentleman to travel to Italy to receive instruction.

    Competition Foils
    The fencing foils we have on site that are rated "fully functional" ie. they are manufactured where the hilt and blade components together are manufactured to 'battle ready" standards. Most are true historical replicas. Most of the foils we stock are "blunted" ie. not sharpened. They are fine for practice and re-enactment.
    For all official FIE ( Federation Internationale d'Escrime ) competitions , and most other high level competitions , FIE-certified blades that have the FIE logo stamped at the base of the blade, along with the code letters for the forge that produced the blade (caveat emptor: some disreputable forges have been known to falsify these marks) are mandatory. The factory does not produce FIE blades , as it emphasizes production on true historical replica blades rather than modern swords or electric swords - used in competition for scoring.
    So if you are looking for a FIE certified or electric practice sword , you have to go to the sites that deal with this type of item.
