I have been dealing with Triplette for about 3 or 4 years now.  They are 
very nice people and know their business.  You can buy a complete 
practice foil or epee from them for a reasonable price.  They ship 
complete weapons assembled.  If you wish to build a fancy more period 
looking weapon, get your blades from Triplette and your other parts from 
the Armoury (a division of American Fencer's Supply) in San Francisco.
I speak from experience on this point and have done it a couple times.  
Triplette also sells the Flexi-dagger blades by France-Lames.  This is 
due in large part to my efforts to convince them to sell them.

Any other Questions, please e-mail me.  I visit them often and even fence 
with them on occasion.
