Fencing Weapons: Epee, Foil, Sabre

Fencing Weapons: Epee, Foil, Saber [Photographic Print at AllPosters.com] (See the middle sword -- that's an ITALIAN foil, not well-known in this fencing generation's knowledge of different schools of fencing. I learned this weapon starting when I was 7 years old, when my father put a sword in my hand & said "you will learn to fence!". I thought my fingers would break at times - it's a difficult weapon to use -- but has strengths you wouldn't believe. JEO)

Ohh! Okay. Got it. Could never figure out what a rapier was.... I knew it was a sword but had no clue what kind. (It was the kind that Reep had)

Somehow, when officials say "report for the medal ceremony In uniform or warmups" I don't think this is what they have in mind.
