A higher quality blade for the beginning to intermediate fencer. Blades come wired with the selected point.
Note: Tangs can be cut to match the type of grip you are using.
The Short Tang is commonly used for smaller grips, such as the Visconti.
The Medium Tang is used for slightly larger grips, such as the Belgian.
The Long Tang is used for the longer grips, such as the French.
Blades usually come with the Long Tang, if you use a French-type grip, or would like to cut your own to match your own grips.
