Is it possible to change a blade (specifically, an LP non-maraging (cheap) epee) from right to left handed by altering the set?

Would this degree of bending weaken the blade too much?

Is that 'Yes, it is possible'

or

'Yes, it will weaken it too much'?

You can do it. Since you're just going to bend the tang once to a new set, any weaking of the tang is going to be negligable.

The things that happen when you don't pay attention.

Help reply wasn't it!


I meant, "Yes it is possible and no it won't weaken the tang enough to worry about."

See Neevel's post.
