Leather Back of Head Protector Version 2

Leather Back of Head Protector Version 2


This is a handmade leather back of the head protector that can be attached to the back of your fencing mask to protect you from harm.

Each cover is made out of 8-10 ounce vegetable tanned cowhide, and is available in either our stitched or riveted construction. 

They are identical to the other styles we offer, but feature an extended flap on the bottom that allows for more coverage for the sides and base of the neck. The flap swivels up or down to allow for ease of movement. 

To add rigidity, you have the option of having yours impregnated with wax, which makes the leather extremely hard and adds to the protective nature considerably.

Hardening the leather will darken the color considerably, so keep this in mind when ordering lighter color options.

The protector is connected to the mask via three straps, one that slides over the tongue in the back, and two more that you thread the elastic strap through.

This item was designed to fit most fencing masks, please contact me if you need special adjustments for yours.

These protectors are legal for most fencing schools, but be sure to check with the official rules and let me know if you need adjustments in order to qualify.

As shown, We can alternate colors on different parts of the protector, Feel free to message us for options.

If you need any other customization, feel free to contact me.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you have any items in Stock, ready to ship?

    We now have a section of in stock items! Everything in this section is available, and will ship within 1-2 business days.

    Why so expensive?

    Our items are all made by hand. We do not mass produce anything, and every item has been designed, tested, and created by us. A lot of time and effort has gone into every item we offer, and we do our best to make sure that everything that leaves our shop lives up to our standards and hopefully yours.

    Can you make a sheath for a knife other than the ones offered here?

    We only offer a few different sheath options, but we operate out of a large brick & mortar cutlery store, so there's a chance we have the knife you're looking for. Contact us to set up a custom order.

    Do your holsters meet IDPA regulations?

    All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.

    Are your leather sheaths lined with Kydex?

    To put in bluntly, if your leather sheath does what it's supposed to do, you shouldn't need to put a different sheath inside of it. Our leather sheaths function very well being made out of leather, and our kydex sheaths work very well without a leather lining.

    Does the knife come with the sheath?

    No. Each item is for the sheath/scabbard/holster itself, no knives, swords, or guns are included with any purchase.

    Great workmanship! Would buy leather items from this seller again! Well made and great quality! Prices amazing too!

    Nice work. It fits my fencing helmet perfectly with really no problem. It’s much lighter in weight than the usual HEMA gear.

    Everything is OK.

    Does not fit super well onto my fencing mask, but I crock that up to wear and shaping it up with use. Brings the tongue/tab out/back so the mask doesn't fit as well.

    This is a solid piece of equipment. Sturdy, and easy to attach to the back of my fencing helm. Note: it did slide around, leaving gaps, the first time I used it. My mask is old though and I think the elastic at the back is not sturdy enough to keep it in place. A duct tape hinge is helping with that until the new mask shows up.
