SEPTEMBER 2012 Being based in London, we've been getting excited about the Olympics for quite a while. We've also been working on a secret project with Leon Paul London, a leading fencing equipment brand to develop a foil handle that athletes can personalise for themselves. So we were absolutely thrilled when we learned that James Davis, the youngest member of the British Olympic fencing team, was so happy with his personalised foil  that he would be competing with it in the Olympics!
