Yes. Foil.

Toyed with Sabre and Epee, but my heart is with the foil.

My better half and I are planning on taking up fencing in the New Year. Does anyone know if there's anything non-vegan about fencing gear of which I should be aware?

Oh fencing, I used to love it, did it for about 3 years, fenced at reginal level for U16's, at foil, but I loved the sabre just as much, epee was a lot of fun, but it wasnt my ball game. I had to end it because I had bad knee's, and now I just dont have the speed in my arm and it would take too long to get it back, plus it would cost me about £400 to get all the kit again haha. I hate'd using other people's eargh.

I've recently started fencing again. I used to fence competitively when I was younger but have had quite a break.
I mainly fence foil and epee but have done a little sabre, though that is not as popular here. I help with classes and am hoping to start training for coaching qualifications later this year. Maybe one or two competitions too.

Fencing gloves tend to be leather. I am looking at alternatives. I'll post anything I find here.
