    Hi everyone,

    A long time since I've written here, but I come to look for help (and I know I'll get some here).
    I've recently been given a blade, which is the best I've ever tested. I've got a better feeling than with any other (BF, Absolute, STM...). Actually, I was fencing with two other blades (before someone gave me this one) and one of them felt incredible. I discovered today that it was a "phi" stamped blade too ! Now that I've got two of them, I would only replace them for another "phi"
    The issue is that the stamp is not letters, so I'm not able to find the manufacturer on Internet. The stamp is the Greek letter "phi". I don't manage to upload a picture from where I am, but I'll do later.

    Thanks for help.

    Picture of the stamp? Sometimes it isn’t what you think.

    Ah," ϕ " - the golden ratio :)
    Appropriate for the most incredible blade ever? I think so. I, of course, have no clue where it comes from.

    To my eyes, it looks like an encircled, elaborately-basketed and -quilloned weapon.

    It's a Dynamo. Absolute, BG, and Swordmasters sell them. They were a very common lower-end blade for some time, but because the factory is located Lugansk, Ukraine supply has been frequently disrupted over the last few years by the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine.
