Equipment Recommendations

Absolute Fencing Gear is the preferred vendor of fencing equipment at the Riverside Fencing Club. These recommendations are for newer fencers who are purchasing their first pieces of fencing equipment.

Club members can order through the club and save on shipping charges (but have to pay MA sales tax, which usually works in your favor). Items not included below can also be ordered through the club.

Electric Equipment & Parts

... for Epee

Protective Gear

Most protective gear is common to both foil and epee. Differences are noted.

Tools & Miscellaneous

  • Fencing bag.
  • Hex wrench.
  • Hard PVC blade cover. You can also just get a length of PVC tubing from the local hardware store (3/4" inner diameter for epee, 1/2" inner diameter for foil, cut to 36" lengths)
  • Precision screwdrivers. You can get these at a hardware store, or even eyeglass repair kits at the local supermarkets will suffice.
