Does anyone know where I can get a custom made heart shaped bell for a french foil that is engraved?

m.5 - The convex face of the guard must have a shape and surface which is both smooth and not too bright. It must be so made that it can neither hold nor catch the opponent’s point. It must not have a raised rim.

Thinks this means that the heart shaped guard is out of the question, my thinking is that the V at the top of the heart might be considered to be able to "actch the opponents point". This is just my interpretation though, I could be wrong.

my guess is, is that it wouldn't be used at a level with any weapons control ;)

That's probably true. Actually as something to do last night i had a go at making one, wasn't actually that difficult. Just altered a guard i had lying around with a hacksaw and a few files and then "rolled" the edges to make it a bit stronger. I'm happy with the result anyway (and i'm pretty sure my girlfriend will appreciate it too):)
