Michael Kauter (born February 18, 1979 in Bern) is a Swiss épée fencer.[2] He won a bronze medal in the weapon at the 2008 European Fencing Championships in Kiev, Ukraine.[3] He is the son of Christian Kauter, a medalist at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich and at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal in épée, and the brother of Fabian Kauter, a former Olympic fencer in the same weapon.[4][5]

Kauter represented Switzerland at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where he competed in the men's individual épée event. He defeated Ukraine's Bohdan Nikishyn in the preliminary round of thirty-two, before losing his next match to Netherlands' Bas Verwijlen, with a score of 13–15.[6]
