Round 1[edit]

Each pool was a round-robin (with matches not being held where unnecessary to the overall result). Bouts were to five touches, and each fencer from one nation had a bout against each from the opponent. The nation which won the most individual bouts took the team bout (with total touches as the tie-breaker if the teams split 8-8). The top two nations in each pool advanced to the semifinals.

Final[edit]

The final was a round-robin. Bouts were to five touches, and each fencer from one nation had a bout against each from the opponent. The nation which won the most individual bouts took the team bout (with total touches as the tie-breaker if the teams split 8-8).

Hungary beat both Italy and Poland, which had each beaten Germany; therefore, the Hungary-Germany match was unnecessary as Hungary would win gold and Germany take fourth regardless of the results. The reason for not holding the Italy-Poland match is less clear; the official report says it was not necessary, but presumably the winner would be the silver medalist while the loser would take the bronze. Italy had defeated Poland 16-0 in the semifinals, which may have been how the final placing was decided.

Rank Nation Wins Losses
1st place, gold medalist(s)  Hungary 2 0
2nd place, silver medalist(s)  Italy 1 1
3rd place, bronze medalist(s)  Poland 1 1
4  Germany 0 2
