As an owner of several StM blades (both FIE and non-FIE) I must say I disagree. I have now had the "oldest" of my StM blades for about three years and have not broken any of them.Originally Posted by CvilleFencer
Then again I very rarely break blades, it's well over two years since I last did, so perhaps it just depends on your/my fencing style. (And I prefer blades that are not too stiff, but definitely not whippy, so StM suits me fine!)
Anyway telkanuru, just to let you know I'm content with my StMs!
