Pair of French Foils—Ein Paar französische Florette, c. 1960


foil1
A well-preserved matched pair of standard, French-style fencing foils, mid-20th century.

There’s nothing that isn’t standard about this pair of French-style fencing foils. The tips are “home-made” at the point of standard, Italian-made #5 blades. The steel guards are bronzed, possibly by the manufacturer, and show traces of active fencing.

Two nicely thread-wrapped French handles, both right-handed, culminate in  standard hexagonal foil pommels on the one, and thick green felt buffers on the other. A plain-vanilla set from the 1960’s.

Length: 42 1/2″

Hilt to tip: 34 3/4″

Balance point: 1 1/4″ from the hilt

Weight: 345 grams each.

2016 Price Range 1: $75.00 for the pair, plus s/h.

Will only be sold as a pair.
