The epee (pronounced “EPP-pay”) is descended from the dueling rapier of the sixteenth and seventeenth century. It is similar in length to the foil, but is heavier, weighing approximately 27 ounces, with a larger guard and a much stiffer blade. The valid target area in epee is the entire body. Points are scored when an opponent hits anywhere on the body with the point of the weapon.MORE INFO
