    Alisher Usmanov, Thomas Bach and Barry Paul consider the future of fencing presentation

    We pride ourselves in always pushing the sport of fencing forwards and at the 2017 World Championships in Leipzig we wanted to show something really special. Ben calls it the moonshot piste, something that can once again transform the presentation of the sport. It is not until you see the piste in person that you can appreciate how totally awesome it is.

    Moonshot Piste

    A moonshot idea is one that reinvents and revolutionises an industry or in our case a sport. Normally designers take a single product and look to make a series of incremental improvements. A moonshot idea is to improve by a factor of 10 making it a giant leap forward in a short space of time. Google calls these ideas project X, which just makes it sound very cool. I have always looked at each problem as they come up and then acted on this individual problem. Often through discussions with fencers, a “problem” is identified and we work out a...

    A German Champion at the German Championships

    A season's retreat

    Gaining a title is never easy. In any sport, at any age class, at any time. To defend a title is, it is said, even more difficult. On March 23, 2016, I managed to win the title of the German B-Youth Champion at my first German Championships in Halle, Germany. It was a hard piece of work, but the feeling of triumph was worth all the hard training, sweat and pain. What I did not know by then was that it was only the beginning.

    Plymouth Fencing Club goes Wireless! Published on behalf of Peter Barrett - Head coach

    This blog post has been written by Peter Barrett head coach of Plymouth fencing club after they went fully wireless in April 2017 with 14 sets of wireless fencing equipment replacing 15 ancient scoring sets.

    • 15 Fencing ‘Boxes’
    • 30 Ground Leads
    • 30 Spools (if they are all working)
    • 6 Mains extension leads

    That’s a lot of equipment to set up and put away 3 times a week.

    In addition to all the agro of pushing fencers to ‘get the boxes out’ comes the average repair cost of around £2,000 per year in keeping it all in working order.

    Collecting Fencing Pins

    This video will give you an introduction to collecting lapel pins, specifically pins related to the sport of fencing. My name is Bill Murphy and I have been collecting fencing pins for over 30 years. While fencing is my favorite sport, collecting fencing pins is my favorite hobby! In this video, I have listed eight different categories of fencing pins. Virtually all of the pins in my collection fall in to one (or more) of these eight categories. Occasionally I am asked which fencing pin is my favorite. My favorite pin might be this one from Hard Rock Cafe' that has...

    Nuts about nuts and pommels....

    Nuts are not the most interesting part of a fencing weapon but they represent a snapshot into the slightly obsessive approach that Leon Paul take to design that flows through into everything we do. We believe our products should be made with little to no compromise and we push things to the limits and sometimes beyond.

    Nice nuts

    Why are nuts so important in fencing?
