This FIE epee comes with a size 5 blade. It is of superior quality, suitable for beginners, and necessary for experienced fencers. The constituency of the blade material and the blue coating prevents it from rusting for a long time in comparison with a non-FIE blade. This is a very important consideration for fencers living in a country with a humid climate. In addition, this FIE epee blade is more durable and generally has a longer lifespan compared to non-FIE blades.
Please note that there is no guarantee on the lifespan of blades. It all depends on how the blade is used by the fencer both in training and in fencing.
IMPORTANT: USE FENCING WEAPONS AND BLADES RESPONSIBLY, NEVER CONDUCT ANY EXERCISE WITH ANOTHER FENCER WHEN ARMED WITH FENCING WEAPONS AND BLADES WITHOUT WEARING THE NECESSARY PROTECTION EQUIPMENT, ESPECIALLY FENCING MASKS. THIS IS TO PREVENT SEVERE INJURIES.
