We typically keep a supply of most common blades for Saber, Epee and Foil in stock. Rewiring Foil and Epee blades, as well as replacing or repairing Foil and Epee points. Body and Mask cord repairs are also offered. We also repair some fencing club equipment including floor reels and cords.
We are an all volunteer club and our armory services are provided by skilled volunteers. You will be charged for parts and repairs are done on a first come, first served basis. We don't charge for our normal repair services other than the cost of the replacement parts required; if something is well beyond our normal service there may be a modest fee above the cost of parts.
