Equipment

Updated: Jan 18


Dear fencing friends and families, it's with great pleasure we are announcing our new armory and equipment services at CFA!


Coach Konstantin ( 704 340 1514 / coachkonstantin@cardinalfencingacademy.com ) is our designated armorer and he’s opening a virtual store at the club. Please contact him directly once you are ready to purchase your equipment.


We are streamlining sizing, ordering and repairing equipment to the highest possible quality and convenience while keeping prices as reasonable as possible. CFA gets a club discount with most vendors and recently there has been a ton of changes to the market. Navigating the myriad options is near impossible unless you’ve been in the game for decades, so we are here to help.


Coach Konstantin will also be working directly with all the coaches to make sure the kit is fine-tuned to individual specs down to the millimeter.


New Kit and Upgrades:

When you are ready to order a new set of equipment or upgrade what you currently have, please contact Coach Konstantin and select one of the following options, keep in mind market prices fluctuate and you will be provided an exact amount to confirm before the order is placed:

  • Silver. Size Five BF FIE Maraging Blade. Non-FIE Beginners stretch uniform, mid-tier mask, shoulder carry bag. $550-$700

  • Gold. Size Five BF FIE Maraging Blade. FIE Uniform (Olympic level) FIE Mask. Rolling Bag. $900-$1500


Coach Konstantin will then schedule a time to measure for size using current club equipment, adjust for variations and details and place the order for you. He will add a processing fee of ($60) then add your kit to a group order every two weeks.
