Which weapon was formerly used in Europe at the fencing sparrings?

épée
foil
sabre
rapier
Foil with its stip­u­lat­ed rules (such as priority of attack) was the only weapon used at spar­rings. At the same time, in real duels an épée was used, and no such rules were ob­served. Hence, an ex­pe­ri­enced fencer could lose his life to a rel­a­tive­ly weak op­po­nen­t.
