Cold Steel 88FBSL Left Handed Officer's Five Ball Spadroon Sword 32" Carbon Steel Blade, Ivory Handle
CS88FBSL: 88FBSL Left Handed Officer's Five Ball Spadroon
In the age of sail, officers were expected to fight right alongside common deckhands. An officer never made his choice of weapon recklessly when he knew he to had to fight hand to hand to repel boarders. The clear choice was a Spadroon as his primary edged weapon. It was lighter than a cutlass, offered a long, stiff blade, was imminently suitable for thrusting, and had a sharp edge capable of delivering a stinging cut. Original antique Spadroons are quite scarce, and far too valuable to use as actual weapons, but luckily you can get a Cold Steel reproduction. Loosely modeled on historical examples, our Spadroon has been hardened to a spring temper, with a combat sharp edge and capable delivering a fearsome cut as well as a lethal thrust. It's handsome too, with a multi ridged faux ivory grip and a gorgeous brass hilt replete with the requisite five ball counter guard and knuckle bow.
Not to be outshined, the scabbard is equally impressive. It's fashioned from rich black leather, and hand stitched, and comes with a mirror polished, solid brass chape, throat, and carrying rings.
