Art of the Blade features the largest private collection of swords and sabers from the Springfield Armory in Springfield, Massachusetts. While the National Armory at Springfield, as it was historically known, was most active in producing muskets, rifles, and bayonets for the U.S. Army, the swords and sabers to come from of the armory for American Servicemen are renowned for their design and production.

This exhibit features over 50 swords and sabers, design details, known variations, production records and rare, and experimental models produced by our nation’s oldest and most renowned armory.

Made possible by The Frank C. Shattuck Community Fund and the Sandra & Monroe Trout Art Exhibitions Endowment Fund both within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region.
