Production and selling of blades - this is definitely our "strong point". This is something StM originates with. This is our pride and the most extensive and significant area of our business and our activity in the fencing market.
StM blades are certainly best in the world!
Many thousands of athletes - from beginners to world and Olympic champions are training and fencing with StM blades at competitions all around the world.
StM blades are made with our own classical technology "handmade" - manual forging with the subsequent thermal and mechanical treatment, using our own special patented intellectual elaborations.
We produce a full range of blades for classical sports fencing, of all types and sizes:
- training and electric blades,
- "bare" and equipped (wired) ones, with point, wiring and cambrics,
- usual and certified (homologated) by the FIE,
- made of spring and of high-quality alloyed steel (including "maraging" steel),
- polished and finished with shot-blasting and sandblasting,
- polished and high-polished,
- without covering and with various color coverings,
- with length of working edge of 750-900 mm.,
and also training and electric blades of Italian style.
All StM blades have ideal symmetry, weight and balance (weighting), and meet all requirements of the rules of the International Fencing Federation FIE.
The 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 blades is also made of high quality spring steel 45ÕÍ2 MÔA (similar to the European 46SiCrMo6 European standard EN10089).
StM has official certificates of the International Fencing Federation for manufacturing and selling epee and foil blades with the FIE mark. The first such certificates have been received by us after successful test (homologation) in SOFRANEL (France) in 1999. Today StM blades are constantly passing periodic homologation in accredited certification centers of the FIE. Each of these tests confirms the highest quality of StM blades.
Any StM blade marked by the FIE is allowed in all official tournaments, including the World Championships and Olympic Games.
Here you can have a look at the list of all world blades manufacturers, the blades of which are certified by the FIE.
Foil and epee FIE blades are made of high-quality maraging spring steel N18K9M5T (ÝÏ-637) used by, among others, as a material for vital springs in aircraft and aerospace engineering.
We are the first-ever in the world who started to put color coverings of micron thickness on blades. These coverings improve the corrosion resistance and prolong the "life" of the blades, making them look more aesthetically attractive.
StM Group owns the registered intellectual patent for applying of such coverings for any metalware items, fencing blades in particular.
To prevent corrosion all the finished StM blades are treated with special preservative grease (transparent and, if necessary, it can be easily washed off), so you can send our products to many thousands of kilometers to buyers and consumers at any time of the year any inhabited areas of the globe.
Over more than 30 years of experience in sales of blades and over 18 years of experience in our own production, we took a close look at the world conjuncture and demand for fencing "iron". We carefully plan, in near-term and far-term prospects, the entire range of products to meet the requirements of even the most demanding 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 the most focused attention to this aspect.
Another distinctive feature and a "brand mark StM" of is the quality, speed and efficiency of client servicing. Over a few days after the receipt of the order we are ready to deliver our products in any locality in Ukraine, and even in the furthermost point on the globe.
All the world leading companies and brands are the buyers of our blades. Still, the best estimate of our work is gratitude of fencers – national champions, Continental, World and Olympic Games champions.
