This is why I want a saber.
The sabre is one of the three weapons of modern fencing. The sabre differs from the other modern fencing weapons, the épée and foil, in that it is possible to score with the edge of the blade; for this reason, sabreur movements and attacks are very fast. For the other two weapons, valid touches are only scored using the point of the blade. Like foil, but unlike épée, sabre uses the convention of right-of-way to determine who acquires the touch.
The term sabreur refers to a male fencer who fences with a sabre. Sabreuse is the female equivalent.
At sabre, it is generally easier to attack than to defend (for example, the timing favours remises) and high-level international sabre fencing is often very fast and very simple, although when required, top sabreurs do display an extended repertoire of tactical devices.
