Digging through our electronic archives uncovered a fascinating piece of New Zealand fencing history. We found 10 scanned copies of "Piste", the NZ Amateur Fencing Association Inc magazine dating from April 1959 to Spring 1963.

Articles on Australian tours, the introduction of electric fencing, Olympic teams, Commonwealth teams, general news from around NZ and elsewhere make these magazines interesting reading for any fencer. Here they are:
