Blade gets record points (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

epee

Here is my best explanation:

'blade' is the definition.

(epee is a kind of blade)

'record points' is the subsidiary indication.

'record' becomes 'ep'.

'points' becomes 'ee'.

'ep'+'ee'='epee'

'gets' is the link.

(Other definitions for epee that I've seen before include "Sharp-pointed duelling sword", "Duelling weapon", "Rapier", "Thin fencing sword", "Narrow fencing sword", "Fencing sword similar to a foil", "Type of sword", "Fencer's sword", "Fencing blade" and "Sword in fencing".)
