    Our local colonel-era home lost its '28 Olympic weapon and is looking for a replacement. Anything vintage would be ok. Suggestions besides Ebay?

    Historical Society Ebay-bought an "antique" practice foil engraved "Klingenthal" and "5" on one side and "Coulaux & Co" on the other. Klingenthal closed in '62. Weren't blade length markings after that?

    I don't think so. I recall seeing some pre-WWII foils with 5 stamped on them.
