Best Answer

if you mean swords alot

there are three swords of moddern Fencing.

FOIL

SABRE

EPEE

Foil is a stabbing weapon that the target is the torso it was used as a training weapon for epee in the 18 hundreds.

Sabre is a cuting weapon that the target is the waist up. it is the only cutting weapon in fencing today Sabre is faster weapon than foil and epee and is more attacking than defending.

Epee is a stabbing weapon that the target is all of the body.epee has no right of way so who ever hits first gets the point.

The sport of fencing requires quite a lot of equipment, actually. If you are simply a beginner fencer, you shouldn't need more than what fencers call "dry" equipment, meaning, a jacket, mask, glove, and weapon. None of these need be conductive, as you should not be fencing while hooked up to a scoring machine just yet. Should you consider competitive fencing, you will need more. If you are fencing epee, all you will need is a cord and an epee that can be hooked up to this cord. If you are fencing foil, you will need a foil vest and a cord, both of which must be conductive. Your foil must also be able to connect with your cord. If you are fencing sabre, you will need the most equipment. Your mask must be conductive. You must have a conductive lame, a conductive cuff, (it goes around your wrist) a blade that can connect to the body cord that you will need, and a mask cord that will connect your mask to your sabre. It is also highly recommended that, if you are fencing competitively, you will need at least two weapons, especially in epee, where they can break quite easily. Another suggested tip is that you learn how to fix your own equipment when it breaks. (believe me, it will)

Blade--Foil, epee (eh'-pay), or sabre. Mask. Glove. Body cord--to hook up to reel, lame, and blade. Lame (lah-may')--registers touches. Chest protector. Underarm protector. Jacket. If you want, a bag to hold all that stuff. Generally, for all tournaments, you need at least 2 working blades (in case one breaks).

What is a training sword called in fencing?

The weapon used for training in the fencing duel era was called the foil (fleur). It is still used as one of the 3 weapons for fencing today, although it has never historically been a real weapon used for combat. There isn't a training sword in fencing. Originally the foil (see above) before the sport fencing - like we know it now - exsisted. Now you choose a weapon (like the foil) and train with that. So in fencing there is no training sword.
