Fencing Information

A foil is a type of weapon used in fencing. It is the most common weapon in terms of usage in competition, and is usually the choice for elementary classes for fencing in general.

There are two varieties of foil in use today: the nonelectric foil, known as "dry" or "steam," and the electrically scored foil. The components common to both varieties are the pommel, grip, guard, thumb pad, and blade.

The nonelectric foil has a blunted end, typically produced by folding over the tip of the blade, that is capped with a plastic or rubber knob. Nonelectric foils are primarily used for practice, although some organizations still fence competitively using dry foils. In the United States, the American Fencing League is an organization that holds only visually judged, non-electric tournaments.
