Orig. American Revolutionary War Pike Head Spontoon 18th C Iron Polearm NR

Description:

Fine Original Revolutionary War Pike Head

Just a super example of a Rev War pike head, most probably American as it bears no signs of royal armourer hallmarks or stamps.

Pikes such as this were a simple yet effective weopon of warfare, used both in defense and offensive tactics. The head of the piece having been fitted on a long wooden pole. Similar examples to this can be seen in numerous books on the subject of Revolutionary War weaponry, see Neumann'sCollectors Encyclopedia of the American Revolutionas well asSwords and Blades of the American Revolution.

Great shape to the blade of this example, especially the broad leaf shape deisgn. Take a moment to click on the images and you'll see you can produce detailed enlargements. An additional element of note there is a small hole on the collar were a nail would have been inserted to help support the blade of the piece on aforementioned wooden staff, and of course the great S Shaped guard on the piece. The S shape guard having been designed to entangle and break sword blades.

There is some pitting to the piece, slight oxidation, wear to the tip of the blade with some rounding, all typical of the signs you would expect to see on a piece of this age; the piece is in solid overall shape.

Measures approximately 12 1/2" in length; with a socket width of 1 1/2" in diameter.

A nice opportunity to purchase a relic of the American Revolution, this piece is certain to be a welcomed addition to any collection on the subject.
