Be the first to review this product

The British Officer’s 5 Ball Spadroon was introduced in the 1780’s and was the first attempt at a uniform pattern sword for the British Military. It was called the 5 Ball Spadroon because of the decoration on the guard. This sword style was popular for both Infantry and Naval Officers and there were a number of variations of the pattern in use. This sword is a faithful replica of the one worn by the wax mannequin of Lord Nelson that was placed on display in Westminster Abbey in 1806.

It features an undecorated, tempered high-carbon steel blade. The ornate brass hilt features a side ring and reeded faux ivory grip intersected with a brass band featuring a fouled anchor and crown. The wooden scabbard is covered with black leather and features brass fittings and 2 hanging rings. The locket is stamped with the fouled anchor on one side and “Richard Teed, Strand” on the reverse.
