There are 3 types of fencing swords: Epee Foil Sabre The target area of epee is the whole body. You hit with the tip of the blade. For foil, only the torso is target area, and you also get a touch with the blade's tip. Sabre is only the upper body. You use the side of the blade, but you can also use the tip.
Usually the blade is made of some kind of bendy metal, so when you lunge or stab your enemy it is clearly visible. The inside of the blade and some of the handle has wire inside to electronically sense the details of the hit (who hit first, where did you hit, etc.) And also, a fencing weapon is not tecnically a sword.
The epee is heavier and a bit more stiff, having a larger bell-guard and a thicker blade.

Three are actually three types of swords in fencing: A foil, which is a lighter and safer practice weapon; an epee, which is heavier with a triangular cross section and fluting along the sides of the blade; and a saber, which is used to slash and thrust.
There are multiple parts of the fencing sword. There is a pommel, that holds almost every part of the sword in place. There is the grip, which one holds the sword with, the guard, which is of varying sizes depending on the weapon, and the blade, the most important part of the sword. If it is an epee or a foil, there will be a tip that will depress at the end of the blade, as well as wires running to the tip.

There are several. I can think of Black Knight, Spiral, Blade, Silver Samurai, Deadpool, Shattershot, Magik, Syr (and a bunch of other characters from Thor) and Nightcrawler uses a rapier (which is a fencing blade). There are a whole bunch!
You can't. The blade of a fencing blade is made out of tempered steel, making it able to withstand a great deal of pressure, while bending, before breaking. The guard at the base is either made out of aluminum or titanium, and the handle is either rubber or a molded alloy. (new person) but you could practice with wooden swords. theyre fun. xD
