Leon Paul was the first company to use Duralumin alloy to produce lightweight guards. Our range of guards across all 3 weapons is renowned for being the most long lasting and safe on the market. The special aluminium means they can be thinner than a standard guard without compromising on strength, they are therefore 30% lighter than our standard guards. We recommended the lightweight Epee inside guard socket ref: E26LW to be used in conjunction with this product.
Unlike other lightweight guards ours are heat tempered after forming to give them a hard yet springy quality that gives them their increased durability. After testing guard designs made from a single piece of material we have found that after heavy use the guard starts to wear away where it is in contact with the tang of the blade. All our guards are reinforced at the tang with a thin stainless steel reinforcement. Our lightweight guards have copper rivets to distinguish them from our normal range.
