      theres a difference
      and its mostly the width of a blade and the curve usually found on a sabre.

      Did it ever occur to you that modern fencing sabers are different from the historical version? Clearly not, or you wouldn’t be making a fool of yourself here.

    11. like they prolly want to call it a saber so they sound like a bad ass when they say “oh i fight with a saber.”
      that thing is more of a rapier than a saber.
      if you want to say its a saber that theyre holding. go a head
      but dont try to correct people (the OP) when theres no way to even tell the difference.

    14. the standard fencing foil has a square cross section that tapers to the point, which is then covered by a button.

      The saber is a triangular cross section that narrows about 2/3 of the way down to just kind of a strip of metal, and then the button.

      An epee is a heavier, flat V shaped cross section that tapers all the way down to the button.

      Each of these styles of modern fencing have their own specific rules. These rules also cover the types of guards allowed in competition. The saber guards are as you see here. The foil guard resembles a shallow bowl, while the epee guard is a deeper bowl, almost bell shaped. I, personally, would hesitate to call them practice swords because no one really uses REAL swords any more (except for oriental martial arts, the random psychopath, and historical reenactors).

    17. I used to fence as well. Those are sabres. If you disregard the width of the blade and compare it to the link that TrikYodz provided, you will realise that they both have edges with which to slash.

      The modern epee used in fencing is the counterpart of the rapier used in the past. It has a point for stabbing. rapiers may have edges, but only to ensure that opponents or enemies cannot grab the sword by the blade.
