  • Product description

    This is a mask used for fencing and sparring in the US Army, when the American Infantry still employed swords as a secondary defense. Despite guns being the primary weapon starting with the Revolutionary War, and the Civil War being the last major conflict to have hand-to-hand combat, the Army continued fencing as a critical part of training through the 20th century. Soft leather padding along the top and inner cheeks of the mask and a quilted throat protector were used as additional protection. Leather straps attached to the metal mask was used for security.
