Leon Paul Etiole Foil is made from UK sourced low carbon steel and is tempered after forging and then heat-treated to relieve stress. It is an extremely rugged blade with a very low incidence of surface defects.
All Etiole blades come to us as a French tang. The only threads on the tang are a small amount of threads for a French Handle Pommel. You need to let us know which tang you prefer when you order yours.
We only offer this blade in a size #5 (non Y-10 fencers)
This is a Med stiffness blade. There are no "soft ones" in this blade.
