Saber Lamé

The saber lamé is a jacket that covers the saber scoring target, the torso and arms. It is made with electrically conductive metal threads.

The fencer's name must be printed on the back of the lamé (or optionally on the side of the leg in the case of United States domestic competition) ONLY AT NATIONAL TOURNAMENTS. At no other U.S. domestic tournament is the printed name required.

Saber Body Cord

The saber body cord connects the electric saber and the lamé to the 'spool' and from there to the scoring machine.

Competition rules require the fencer have at least two working body cords at tournaments. Saber and foil body cords are interchangeble.

Saber

A competition saber is electrified. A body cord plugs into the saber next to the hand inside the bell guard and to the lamé in order to make the connections to the electric scoring apparatus.

Saber blades come in a variety of lenghs (#0, #2 and #5). Children under 10 years of age are required to use a #0 or #2 size blade.

Competition rules require the fencer have at least two working sabers at a tournament.

About

Yes, we absolutely do fence in a cornfield! Literally at Bluff Grange, a farmers' coop building in the corner of a cornfield on the bluffs over the Missisippi River Valley near St. Louis in Southern Illinois.

We have both recreational and competitive fencers of all ages.
