  • Dutch East India Cutlass

    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.

  • Pirate Cutlass

    The Cutlass, also known as a ‘hanger’, ‘cuttoe’ or ‘short saber’, was the weapon of choice for a 16th and 17th Century pirate. The word Cutlass comes from the French word “couelace” or the Italian for “coltellaccio”, both meaning ‘large knife’. The weapon was designed as a single-edged blade with a steel basket for protection and ease in combat within the proximity of a pirate ship's close quarters. The sweeping, open design of this cutlass is both threatening and practical, with the basket being used to punch their enemies with an iron fist.Our cutlass consists of a steel riveted pommel and black, leather-covered wooden handle and includes a leather scabbard to protect the blade in transit.

  • Scottish Pirate Cutlass

    Pirates greatly appreciated the cutlass for its effectiveness in close combat. Because of its relatively compact dimensions, a cutlass could do quite a bit of damage in the close quarters of a ship's hold, while a strong cut with its broad blade could even sever the mighty ropes of a ship. Sometimes the classic cutlass was made with an openwork hilt for ventilation plus hand protection, but the single-edged, wide, curved blade with a distinctive yelman is characteristic of all cutlasses. The grip is wrapped with leather and the rounded pommel is riveted. The accompanying scabbard has a mount and chape made of steel. Circa 1690.

    Total length: 79 cm
    Blade length: 63 cm
    Grip length: 9 cm

  • Musketeer Rapier

    The musket, though the prime weapon of the French Musketeers, was a cumbersome firearm, both to load and fire. A good rapier was a necessary second weapon. Our Musketeer rapier is fashioned after those circa 1590. The basket hilt is ambidextrous and a very effective mix of both the cup-hilt and swept-hilt styles. The grip is wood wrapped with twisted wire and the parts of the hilt are plated with gleaming nickel silver.

    Blade length: 96 cm
    Grip length: 10 cm
    Weight: 1.27 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.9 mm

  • Persian Scimitar

    The Persians used saber-like swords called "shamshir" or scimitar. Our Persian scimitar has a slender, single-edged blade with a long fuller. It is parallel for around half of it length, when it begins to taper to a point and curve at the same time. These edged weapons were designed to be used by mounted warriors. With a scimitar, you can apply cutting and thrusting techniques with equal effect. The wooden grip is decorated with metal riveting and curved like a pistol grip. The crossguard is shaped like an elongated cross and is indeed decorated with the Persian cross fleury. The langet provides extra support for the hilt and blade. This crossguard shape is characteristic of all scimitar-type swords. A scabbard is included.
