If you like crunchy 3e-style systems (but maybe you don't like 3e because it's shitty and unbalanced and martials are subjected to terrible feats like "Basic Competence: Owners of this feat won't stab themselves in the dick when they roll 8 or less") you could check out FantasyCraft. It's got crunchy, tactical wargame combat, but is well balanced (everything is a bit gonzo) and the martials are fantastic. Pic related, it's the fencing tree. The whole thing; you'll have plenty of feats left to take other cool abilities to synergize with your fencing if you like.
Notice how you can enter total defence and auto-hit someone who enters an adjacent square. Then if they miss ('cause you're in total defence) you can step back and draw them out to follow you. Which means they just stepped into your adjacent square again, so you can auto-hit them a second time, because "I'm a master fencer, get fucked, NPC."
>>44679897 7th Sea - accept no substitutes. I don't believe any of these other games allow you to mock your rivals into uselessness in as enjoyable a fashion. And yes, banter is that important, otherwise you're just a warrior with Weapon Proficiency rapier.
If you're okay with Pathfinder and with 3rd party material, make a Dexterity-based Warlord with Path of War that focuses on the Scarlet Throne discipline, which is pretty much exactly what you're asking for, albeit adapted for use on a battlefield.
