SPEARGUNS

 

 

Alcedo Spearagun

1962 Alcedo Pneumatic Speargun with original spear shaft and extremely rare triple-barb speartip. This is near-like-new condition, and extremely rare in any condition. The Alcedo (which means KingFisher) was invented by Carlo Alinari and produced by L'Alcedo of Italy. In 1956 Industrial Designer Alinari received the Compasso d'Oro Award for his Atlantic Fishing Reel developed for L'Alcedo. He also invented depth and decompression measurement guages for which he received 5 US patents between 1976 and 1982, and a 6th patent obtained in 1993 for a speedboat propulsion system. Monsieur Alinari last resided in Lido Di Camaiore IT and Alcedo LTD, located in Mont Mascal Petit Raffray Mauritius, specializes in the manufacture of high-quality fishing equipment.

 

 

Aqua-King Speargun Handle

Healthways Aqua-King. Small but one of the rarest spearguns in the world. One of the very first Healthways Factory-Made Spearguns. Have only seen one sold in the last 6 years and a second in a museum. This one is Serial #18.

In December of 1957 Healthways added two new dry suits to their line of Skin Diving Suits, the Aqua-King was their high-end model (selling at that time for $42.50 with an alternate model, the Aqua Flite, selling for $29.95 and their original 1955 Carib model at $39.95). This model speargun was part of their 'new' Aqua-King line.

Nemrod Crucero Speargun

Nemrod Crucero Aka Dreadnaught. Everything is there and Original, including the spear, shaft and reel. This Pneumatic speargun functions with a sliding piston in the barrel for power (no cartridge). When the rear Super-Compressor Handle is engaged it adds even more power (30%). A large speargun at 63", 74" with spear in and Super-Compressor un-cocked ie horizontal, the Crucero's effective range at 15-ft depth is stated to be 30-ft and the Crucero was Nemrod's Top Of The Line. The Original Brochure (pictured below) is 18-pages covering instructions, care, and schematics as well as a comparison specification chart for all four of Nemrod's spearguns of the time (the other three being the Fragata, Corbeta and Goleta). Nemrod's history can be found on the Diving Decals Page category N-S.
