There are three types of weapon: foil, épée, sabre.
All weapons are authorised providing only that they conform to these regulations and to the saftey standards which are annexed.
The weapon should be constructed so that it cannot normally injure either the user or an opponent. All methods of treating a blade between the guard and the tip (button), by grinding, filing or other methods, are forbidden.
Sharpening the edges or angles of the point is forbidden.
