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.
