French post issued a set of stamps of World Fencing Championship.
Sports emblematic of the era of chivalry, fencing has become, in recent centuries, a combat sport subtle, precise, elegant, and an artistic practice and play. The three weapons of fencing (epee, foil and saber) and a fencer disabled sports are represented here on two stamps. The vignette, meanwhile, illustrates the canopy of the Grand Palace which hosts the championship.
