A foi is a pair of hands clasped in friendship. It’s been found in period Italian armory, in the arms of di Amadi, mid-15th C. [Triv 50]; the Italian term, fede, has the same meaning as the French foi (“faith”). Given its mention in Woodward , the Society uses the French term. The foi has its hands in fess by default; the illustration has the hands wearing cuffs.
