Cold Steel Officer's Five Ball Spadroon

Cold Steel Officer's Five Ball Spadroon

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. Original antique Spadroons are quite scarce, but luckily you can get a Cold Steel reproduction. Loosely modeled on historical examples, our Spadroon has been hardened to a spring temper, and fully sharpened. 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.

Officer's Five Ball Dirk

At our president, Lynn C. Thompson's insistence, we've produced a matching dirk as well. Highly evocative of the large Spadroon, the Five Ball Dirk offers a rigid double-edged blade, faux ivory grip, brass guard with integral five ball counter guard and a rich black leather and brass scabbard.
