American Handforged Spontoons, Trench Spikes, Infantry and Cavalry lances

Above is a collection of American Revolution -era spontoons carried by foot infantry or lance head carried by cavalry, trench pikes used in defensive positions, and artillery defense pole arms against charging cavalry.

Offered here is a handforged 10" long flat leaf-style spontoon or lance blade, sharpened on both sides, and typically carried by infantry or by cavalry as a lance due to its smaller size and less weight. It has a hand-forged rolled-over socket with reinforced socket edge ring for placement onto a wooden pike, pole or spear. Simple yet effective design. Similar examples are found in "The Collector's Encyclopedia of the Revolutionary War" and "Swords and Blades of the American Revolution" reference guides. This certainly would have been used by American land forces. This is NOT a naval boarding pike head.
