Independant Kit Suppliers

Please note this is not an exhaustive list of suppliers and will not be kept up to date regularly. It is your responsibility to search out suppliers and shop around!

You are strongly advised to ask for advice from the Club before starting to purchase fencing kit and to try out the different options at the club before deciding what suits you.  We have put together some basic advice here.

Second Hand Kit

Care should always be taken buying second hand kit but especially when buying kit from people unknown to you and auction sites.  Standards change making kit obsolete and there can be be small differences in kit which may not be made clear and can catch out the unwary.  Two good sources of second hand kit are below. Always take care (ask a coach or equipment supplier if in doubt) that you know the protection levels of the kit you are buying and the standards you need for you requiremnets and the size of the weapon you are buying!

Bath Sword Club sells 2nd hand kit for members. Currently a sale is held on one Thursday a month although we are aiming to slowly add the kit to an online list here
