The lightest and most durable FIE epee blade in the world made from low carbon maraging steel. A unique patented design allows us to cold forge these blades, greatly reducing defects in the steel and giving the greatest lifespan of any Epee blade. After the blade is formed we shock blast the blades by hand which increases the surface density and removes any external flaws. The blade is then heat treated at 225 degrees for 55 minutes which hardens the steel. Each blade is then tested by hand and the flexibility of the blade measured. This means you can choose a blade with the stiffness that suits your fencing style. This blade, on average achieves 17,000 bending cycles on our FIE testing machine. This blade also holds the FIE world record surviving the longest on its bending machine. The V formed FIE Epee blade is also incredibly light coming in under 150g.
Wired with Leon Paul Silk 'German Style' FIE Epee Tip fusing British manufacture with German design to give you the best Epee point possible. The latest design for our contact spring now features the same tightly wound 'one way' spring that is found in German style Epee points. This means the spring can only be wound onto the thread and cannot be unwound in use. This innovation eliminates this problem of the spring moving up on the thread leading to the point failing the gauge test and prevents the need to stretch the spring.
