Twenty-nine competitors started in the individual épée event. Seven first round elimination pools were used to narrow them down to 15 semi-finalists, who then fought two pools to determine the six finalists. The Frenchman, Georges de la Falaise, was an easy victor in the final. His teammate, Georges Dillon-Cavanagh, finished second. However, this was only after a fence-off between Dillon-Cavanagh and Félix Vigeveno, Hendrik van Blijenburgh, and Emil Schön, who all tied for second place. De la Falaise was French champion at both épée and sabre.
