FencingNo weapon is technically the "sharpest" sword, since they aren't meant to do damage. But, since it doesn't have an actual point, I suppose it could be seen as the sharpest out of the three. AnswerNo weapon in Fencing is sharp, as like above they aren't meant to do damage. Fencing in foil and epee is a contact sport and the action is lunge rather than slash.However, in Sabre, it is a slash motion and contact motion but the swords are not intended to injure the players. There is no "blade" but rather a long thin metal stick. Sharp?Technically none are 'sharp' however due to the nature of continually knocking the blades together; blades that are not kept in pristine condition develop metal splinters on the sides (by nature of the sports, Sabre and epee mostly) If you ran your finger down such a blade it would hurt... a lot. And metal splinters are blighters to get out, fencing blades may not be sharp, but beware holding the actual blade!
