Caltrop

Item Number: C0879


Exceptionally large rare original Revolutionary War Era hand-made caltrop weapon. Each spike measures about 1 1/2". Caltrops were small antipersonnel and anti-horse weapons with 4 sharpened spikes that would be scattered on roads or trails and in stream beds to puncture boots or hooves and disable the victim. These were designed so there was always one spike facing up. Similar to one pictured on page 57 of "Collectors Illustrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution" by George Neumann and Frank Kravic, 1977. An outstanding sharp and impressive example.

PERIOD: 1775

ORIGIN: United States
