As a house rule, some people do let you by the skill categories, as one stage higher, so you can buy Fencing Weapons [P/H]. Since all the skills in a category have generous defaults to each other and you generally get diminished utility for knowing how to use multiple similar weapons, it's an interesting trade-off - do you want Rapier-16 or Rapier-15 and Saber-15 for the same amount of points?

But that's a house rule and not Rules as Written.
