This ‘’Munitions Grade” sword is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades making them poorly suited for sharpening and cutting, but are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

A popular sidearm of American, British and French naval officers from the latter 18th and early 19th centuries, the Spadroon was a light, fast blade capable of duel-ending thrusts against smallswords and it had just enough heft to hold against the heavier broadswords and sabers of the time. Though well-suited for thrusting, the Spadroon has a sharp cutting edge capable of delivering effective cuts. The ‘’Five-Ball’’ is a reference to the five spheres in the knuckle guard.

American Spadroons, wielded by officers of fabled American frigates such as Constitution and Constellation would have wielded Five-Ball spadroons against those of their British counterparts, or even the scimitars of the Barbary Pirates.

This Five-Ball Spadroon has an unsharpened high carbon steel blade that has been tempered. The reproduction blade bears the maker’s signature of John Knubley, who was a sword cutler in London’s Charing Cross from 1785-1795. The hilt fixtures are of brass and the grip is faux ivory. It comes with a leather scabbard with brass accents and two suspension rings. A leather washer at the base of the blade protects the crossguard from banging into the brass throat of the scabbard.
