  • VB Feder (No Fuller)

    There are several blade types to choose from: stiff or flexible blades.

    We offer our federblades a wide range of flexibility, which is adapted to the different fencing techniques.

    More and more people are taking part in Tournaments, where a strong blade to blade contact belongs to the fence. We offer them the tournament blades, which are very strong but not flexible, closer to a combat-ready sword, but more dangerous when performing stitches.


    The flexible blades are designed for light, technical fencing, there is no strong blade contact, it is more about fencing techniques. These blades are light and flexible, are very flexible and bend at the stich - thus taking much of its dangerous energy from the attack - but they are weaker at the same time: they are not suitable for fencing with full contact.

    The medium stiff blade is the most sought after and a large number of users use this type. These blades withstand hard blade contact, but are also flexible and make fencing safer.

    Before buying, we recommend that you agree with the Fencing Club which blade the coach proposes to your knowledge and fencing style!

    Blade Length: 98cm
    Total Length: 130cm
    Gaurd Length: 23.5cm
    POB: 6.5cm
    Weight: 1500g
