The spontoon is basically a scaled down polearm or winged spear that often served as a substitute for a rifle or musket in colonial America. Issued in substantial quantity by both sides of every conflict from the French and Indian war (1754-1763) to the War of 1812, it was carried as both a weapon and a badge of rank or authority by commissioned and non-commissioned officers alike. Cold Steel®'s president Lynn C. Thompson became fascinated by the spontoon after reading Tim Willocks' novel The Twelve Children of Paris (3 times!) and decided to make a Cold Steel® model based on historical examples.More information
