The historic French forge Blaise Freres (BF) have been producing blades since 1885 and are renowned for high quality and workmanship. This blade is made with Maraging stainless steel and designed to be well balanced with great point control. We stock only Medium Flex Silver blades, for hard 'D' blades please look at the blue version.
This classic Epee design is made by one of the best-established forges in Europe and is the same blade that is sold by most other UK and European vendors. We stock relatively few of these blades as most people choose to buy our Leon Paul blade which is lighter and longer lasting.

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 the 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.
