One of the rules regarding blades was recently modified.
This new implementation of the regulations will be enforced according to the following criteria:
- The rule is already enforced for epee and foil.
- For sabre, the obligation will apply from the beginning of the 2020-2021 season.
- However, it is strongly recommended to the fencers to advance the date of application.
To see the application of this rule for tournaments other than FIE-sanctionned events (for example provincial and national tournaments), please refer to our Rules FAQ section. If you have any questions regarding this, do not hesitate to contact us.
