Cold Steel Left Handed Officer's 5 Ball Spadroon Sword 88FBSL
SKU: CS88FBSL MPN: 88FBSL
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, the Cold Steel Spadroon has been hardened to a spring temper, and fully sharpened, it's 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.
