Introduction to Fencing
This page contains information for the Italian Style foil fencing.
refer to this page for information.
For those that would like to buy their own equipment, there are a
number of companies that sell fencing equipment of varying quality.
If you are most interested in buying an Italian foil I would suggest
going to www.thefencingpost.com
and looking in the foil area under
classical fencing. The complete foil you should buy is #FF81. I
also like American Fencers Supply.
They are a little more expensive but the quality of the gear is good
and I've always been treated well by them. You may find other vendors
on the list at http://www.usfencing.org/Contacts/Corporate.asp.
For a French setup you may look at the starter sets at http://www.blade-fencing.com/.
I'd suggest the 5 piece econo starter set as it comes with a bag to
carry your gear.
