Historical Info about Spontoons
While the spontoon was most popular in the 18th and 19th century, this spontoon works well across other centuries and eras as well, from the medieval to the Renaissance. It takes its design from a weapon used for a long period of time, including the beginning of the United States.
As time went on, the spontoon, or espontoon as it is sometimes called, became less of a weapon used against cavalry, and more a symbol of authority and discipline. In fact, it was eventually carried solely by sergeants.
