Dutch East India Cutlass

Be the first to review this product

The Dutch East India Company was not only the first multinational corporation, it was also the world's largest trading company in the 17th and 18th centuries. In its heyday, it owned around 4,700 ships with a crew totaling almost one billion men. They had to defend their ships as well as their offices in Indonesia and Jakarta, and a cutlass was the best weapon for the job. For man-to-man battles, its length is perfect for the tight space of a ship. And the single-edged blade with two fullers is extraordinarily strong so it can cut ropes as well as hack through underbrush on land. The slightly curved, elegant wooden grip combines with an gracefully sweeping knuckle bow and shell-shaped basket to create a beautiful hilt worthy of the mighty VOC. Our Dutch East India Co. cutlass comes with a leather scabbard.

Description

Details

Circa 1763. This historically accurate cutlass is a replica of the type used by the Dutch East India Co., but it's like could be found across the seven seas. It must be stressed that no design rules applied to the early cutlass, and they took several forms. Our version features a slightly curved wood grip married to a gracefully formed knuckle guard and a steel shell on a long, effective blade.
