This is the new Esprit Foil FIE Blade made in Italy!
Built by the Master Forger Alberto Franchini in Italy.
This is a very high end foil blade. Used by many of the top foilist in the world like: Gold Mentalist Valerio Aspromonte. Yes, that kind of high end. Many country Teams!
Each foil is forged to perfection to even have its own laser engraved serial number on it.
The stiffness guide for these foils are as followed:
· Hard - Stiff or
Medium - when we can get them
Every blade comes with a card that shows the Mfg date, ownership serial number and stiffness guide from the Mfg.
Tangs: All foil blades from Esprit are for "pistol" grip only. Meaning: a French handle cannot be used with it. Points: we at Sword Masters are only going to be offering this blade bare or with the two top FWF German points (Standard German and Extra German) and of course the super high end Italian point.
These foils are a limited production item due to hand forging. We at first will only receive between 8 to 10 foil blades per month for the entire country. Since we at Sword Masters are the exclusive re-seller of Esprit Blades here in the USA, it will not be long before we are at the top of the list in production at this forge with our fencer's help.
These blades are that "perfect" foil.
Now the legal stuff: can you still break this blade: yes. It's the nature of the sport. Yet, if your looking for something that is not mass produced and is sought after by the top fencer's in the world to use, here it is.
Epee Blades are coming soon. Once they are approved by the FIE SEMI.
