MOST RARE! 1750-1780 British or possibly American-made Boarding Pike - Leaf Blade, Socketed with Hole for Securing Nail.

American Handforged Spontoons, Trench Spikes, Infantry and Cavalry lances

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

Offered here is a beautifully well-preserved naval boarding pike, of either American or British provenance. Design dating pre-Revolutionary period but used by American navy throughout the Revolutionary War as they were easy to manufacture. The only reason we believe this possibly to be of British origin is that it is not crudely manufactured and the socket is not open but welded closed with a hold for a securing nail. An low profile 10" long with a 5" short leaf shaped flat blade which was necessary aboard a sailing vessel. Similar examples are found in the authoritive "Boarders Away" reference guide. This could have been used by either British or American land forces, most likely British due to the fine method of construction.
