Stitched Leather Back Of the Head Protection

Stitched Leather Back Of the Head Protection


This listing is for 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 one is hand stitched out of 8-10 ounce latigo cowhide (unless the natural color is chosen, in which case it will be made out of 8-10 ounce vegetable tanned cowhide)

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.

Helmet not included.

    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.

    I’m very happy with my purchase. My protector needed some alterations that the seller made.

    Very well made! Thank you!

    I fought in it and it feels great!

    Excellent quality and good back of head protection

    Bought the hood as a gift for a friend to use in SCA cut and thrust. Paid extra for the hand stitching. Everything works fine, but the ugly scribing etched into the hide at the top ruins the look. Most leather workers don’t use that portion of the hide because it makes the product look bad.
