The overwhelming majority of "ordinary" StM blades are made of spring steel 60S2A (similar to the European 46Si7 by European standard EN10089). One type of StM sabre blade is also made of stainless spring steel 45ÕÍ2 MÔA (similar to the European 46SiCrMo6 European standard EN10089).
Blades made with steel 45ÕÍ2 MÔA are additionally marked "X".
In blades production, besides standard methods of machining - grinding and polishing, StM uses gravelling and sandblasting. These blades are marked with an additional symbol "ts".
StM has official permission of the International Fencing Federation to manufacture and sell epee and foil blades with the mark of FIE. The first such authorization has been received by us after the test (homologation) in France in 1999, after which StM blades are constantly passing periodic homologation in accredited certification centers of FIE. Each of these tests confirm the highest quality of StM blades.
Blades marked by FIE are allowed in all official tournaments, including the World Championships and Olympic Games.
You can familiarize with results of blades testings (homologation)of all firms-manufacturers here.
Foil and epee blades marked by FIE are made from high-quality spring steel ÝÏ-637 (N18K9M5T type "Maraging") used by, among others, as a material for critical springs in aircraft and aerospace engineering.
We are the first-ever who started to put color coverings on blades of micron thickness. These coverings improve the corrosion resistance and prolong the "life" of the blades, making them look very aesthetic and attractive.
StM owns the registered intellectual patent for drawing of such coverings for any metalware, including fencing blades.
To prevent corrosion all ready StM blades are handled with special preservative grease (transparent and, if necessary, easily washed off), so you can send our products to many thousands of kilometers to buyers and consumers at any time of the year in the most remote corners of the globe.
In the nearly 30 years of experience in sales of blades and over 17 years of experience in its own production, we always "trim the sails to the wind" of the world conjuncture and demand for fencing "iron", so we carefully plan the entire range of products to meet the requirements of even the most "capricious" customers. Today StM has a many thousands warehouse with a full range of finished blades of all types and sizes. We do not serve our customers "just out of the oven" - this is our rule, because all the products get a long careful technical control and inspection. We pay special attention to this aspect.
