1.The largest and heaviest weapon used in sport fencing. Scoring is done my hitting ANY part of the opponent's body, unlike Foil or Sabre where only torso or arms are target.
2.The main weapon used for duels in one-on-one sword fights (foils are for training and sabres are for large scale battles).
