    It's a fencing foil. The blade is stamped Made in France, so it's likely a BF blade resold by Leon Paul. It has no socket, so it's not intended for use with electrical scoring apparatus. A weapon like this sold today would be for beginners to learn the basics. I can't guess at its age.

    I wonder how old that sword is as it's a size 4. Something that isn't made these days.

    Default 🤺 Dutch filmmakers are producing a fencing film! 🤺

    The short film Dubbel D (Double D) tells the story about 13-year old Puck who is confronted by her changing body that starts to develop more traits associated with femininity at a fencing camp, she is forced to reevaluate the relationship she has to her body.

    It will be a very personal film, because the director is a fencer herself. Fencing will be a great motive in the film. Besides that, fencing is not a common subject in filmmaking history. We wanted to make a change and show people how beautiful the sports is by sending the film to different film festivals across the world.

    Unfortunately, filmmaking canít be free. Want to help us make this short film, and get it to screens near you (or get a link so you can see the film)? Support us through a small contribution via��
