Epee
The modern epee originated from the Épée de Combat in the 19th century and is a derivative of French Small-Sword. The epee is a stabbing weapon like the foil, but it has a more rigid blade with a triangular cross-section and a V-shaped groove (called a fuller). The guard is also larger. Since there is no regulation on priority, its technique and play style are also different. Epee is the only fencing event that uses the whole body as an effective area. Because of this, an excellent epee player can anticipate the opponent's movements and initiate an attack at the right time. The length of the epee sword is 110cm, and the weight does not exceed 770g; the length of the sword is 90cm, and the cross section is approximately triangular. The body of the epee is hard and not easy to bend, and the bell-shaped guard plate is larger.
