Fencing Sword and Blade Sources
A very popular fencing supply company. Carries schlager and flexi-dagger blades, too. I've bought my jacket, mask and some blades from Triplette.
Not on-line - no web site. Has printed catalog available.

Schlager blade $60 as of February 18, 1998.
MAS had the lowest price for schlager blades that I've found. They are name-brand France Lames, though, the same as many other dealers carry. I've heard that there are only four schlager manufacturers altogether.
I have their Black Tulip dagger blade, and have gotten schlager blades from them twice.

Lots of local SCA people have bought equipment from Scottie. Seems to be a well-recommended supplier.
Here's an e-mail message quote:
" I am selling any of the standard ovals for $80.00 and the standard diamonds
when I have them for $103.16" [Feb 18, 1998]
" My prices are higher than others. This I know.
However, unlike the others I am on the field and therefore take a lot longer
making sure each and every blade fits within a very strict set of criteria.
This results in the higher price, but much happier customers.
Nice catalog site with many good pictures of their products.

The following guards are meant to be mounted primarily with the practice Schlager blade. They have openings that may allow smaller, less robust blades to be trapped and broken. We have schlager blades available in 35, 37, 40 and 45 inches. These hilts styles are basically the same that would be used in mounting the double canelure blade as well as the heavy rapier blade. Please let us know what you wish to mount so that we may prepare the hilt properly for that blade. If you would like us to fit one of these blades for you, the additional cost for the complete weapon is shown below:
(pictures shown on web site)
#S1 3 Ring Swept:The three ring swept, with its classic three bar sweeps on its inner guard, make it one of the most sought after pieces in any collection. It can be dated from ca. 1585 to well into the 17th century. Guard:$85Sword:$185
#S2 2 Ring Swept:This guard is the classic swept hilt rapier found throughout Europe from ca. 1550 and not falling out of style until the late 17th century.
#S3 2 Post Guard: One of the earliest hilts in the collection, this guard was used equally as long as either ring hilt. The inner guard has two bar sweeps that connect to the lower quillion, putting all the protection to the front of the quillion block.Guard:$85Sword:$185
#S4 2 Port-Cross:This guard, with its large and small ports as well as its X inner guard, sets it apart as a much earlier style hilt. Although an old style it is still in use in France as late as 1600. Guard:$85Sword:$185
#S5 Closed Port Swept:When a little more protection was necessary for the hand this hilt was developed. AVB Norman shows several of this type of hilt mostly early 1600's but seen in portraits from much earlier. The small port is filled with a pierced plate, and the outer guard wraps farther around the hand, giving more protection.Guard:$95Sword:$195
#S6 Pappenheimer: Made famous by a Dutch general during the Thirty Years War (1618-1648), the Pappenheimer is a frontally symmetrical hilt with two supported lobes that have been pierced. It offers good protection for your hand as well as a period lowlands look. This hilt will also serve mounted with an epee as noted later.Guard:$95Sword:$185
#S7 Shell hilt: Around 1610 it became fashionable to fill the rings of a rapier with large fluted shells. This hilt is a form of what is usually called a Pappenheimer. The shells that half fill the rings of this frontally symmetric hilt lend it an elegance as well as providing protection for the hand. Guard:$95Sword:$185 This hilt is also available mounted with an epee - see the section ahead.
#S8 Case of Rapiers: This is actually two swords made to fit into one sheath. Because of this, each has an inner guard that is limited to two posts. They are made to nest together, and as such are almost flat on one side. One side (usually the left) has smaller arms to accommodate the nesting of the two blades.A special scabbard can be made for these two swords. add $10 to the price of the scabbard style you want. Guards:$170Swords:$370
Note: Some blades may be out of stock from time to time. 37 inch add $5 40 inch add $10 42 to 45 inch add $15 Diamond Schlager (sharp) add $35 Double canelure blade add $35 Heavy rapier blade add $35 Real (sharp) rapier blade add $50
Please call and confirm availability. Both rapier blades are 1" wide, about 38" long, and slowly taper to the tip. The edges are hand ground to a varying degree of sharpness depending upon what is ordered. Mailed sharp or blunt, as you wish.
Modern Fencing Equipment
Santelli Fencing Equpipment
Located in New York. Address and phone number not seen (yet) on their web site.
I bought my first set of fencing gear from Santelli.
Someone else's (Fritz on fending, http://members.aol.com/BookKritik/fencing.html#Web Links) comments on Santelli:
"I have ordered from Santelli, and for several reasons. Their phone service was very good. Jennifer could answer quickly and efficiently any questions I had. Their prices were quite competitive, especially their package deals. They also had the best catalogue (which I received two days after leaving a phone message requesting one). The catalogue shows nearly 100% of their inventory, and in full-color. The order took only two days to arrive (via UPS ground service). Only three minor knocks on Santelli -- (1.) they have a good website for presenting their equipment, but no prices are provided. (2.) They have no email which would have saved phone calls to ask questions. (3.) They have no (800) number."
Sykes Sutlery sells Santelli equipment, and says that Santelli's blades are made by France Lames, including the schlager blade.
I didn't see schlager blades listed in their on-line catalog.
