  • British Royal Navy Boarding Cutlass - 1804 Pattern

    2 Review(s)

    This pattern of sword was introduced during the Napoleonic Wars and saw service at the famous Battle of Trafalgar. Previous cutlasses shared a similar figure 8 hilt design but featured horn or leather grips that deteriorated quickly when exposed to seawater and changes in temperature. The introduction of an iron grip greatly extended the serviceable life of this sword. The hilts were traditionally painted or japanned to stop them from rusting. The blade has been forged from AISI 1065 High Carbon Steel and has been well-tempered. It is housed in a black hardened buff leather scabbard.

    Total length: 89 cm
    Blade length: 74.5 cm
    Grip length:  12 cm
    Weight: 1.458 kg
    Blade thickness (base):  6.3 mm
    Blade width (base):  3.6 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB):  15 cm
    Blade: AISI 1065 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Threaded
    Scabbard: Leather, Brass

  • British Cutlass

    The Cutlass; the iconic sword of the seaman. Simple and effective, its robust design was used by Western navies for centuries. It was short for the close quarters of ship fighting, yet not so long as to be tangled in rigging or disadvantaged belowdecks. British, American and Australian navies were still doing routine cutlass drills for their sailors into the early years of the 20th century. It was not until 1936 that the Royal Navy officially relegated the cutlass to a ceremonial weapon.

    There have been numerous accounts of enthusiastic boarding crews ably armed with cutlasses that have overwhelmed larger ships that would have outgunned them in a ranged fight. Such as the 1801 action between the British 14-gun Speedy and the Spanish 32-gun Gamo. A crew of 40 British sailors subdued a frigate three times their number by climbing over their railings, cutlasses in hand and calling for reinforcements that did not exist! The frightened Spanish soon surrendered.

    This cutlass, made by Universal Swords of India, features a tempered high carbon blade that has been blackened. The hilt is of steel with a grip of brown painted wood sandwiched over the riveted tang. It comes with a leather and riveted scabbard with a brass chape.

    Total length: 75 cm
    Blade length: 60 cm
    Weight: 1.134 kg
    Blade thickness (base):  5.6 mm
    Blade width (base):  3.8 cm

  • Pirate Sabre

    You might get the impression that the pirate's favorite edged weapon evolved from our naval saber, but that isn't entirely correct. This type of sabre was probably developed by the British Navy, which was looking for a weapon as optimal for close combat as it was for countering attempts to board ship. The thick, single-edged blade of a slightly curved naval sabre could easily slice through the ropes attached to a grappling hook and turn around to pierce an enemy at close quarters. The naval sabre's use was straightforward and easy to learn. Naval sabres caught on and were soon used on ships throughout the world – including ships that flew the black flag.

    Our naval sabre meets the requirements listed above and its very wide fuller also makes it extremely light. The hardwood grip is comfortable to hold and the brass basket is practical as well as visually pleasing. It comes with a black leather scabbard featuring a mount and chape.

    Total length: 80.5 cm
    Blade length: 66.5 cm
    Grip length: 10.5 cm
    Weight: 0.90 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.4 mm

    Blade width (base): 3.8 cm
    Blade width (CoP): 3.5 cm

  • US Navy Cutlass M1860

    Starting in 1860, US Navy M1860 cutlasses were manufactured for the US Navy in Chicopee, MA. They continued to be used after the Civil War broke out. Our replica has the marks you would expect to see on an original: "USN DR 1862" and "AMESMFGCO CHICOPEE MASS" to show that the cutlass is military issue and who manufactured it. Heavily influenced by the sabre used by the French navy, our US Navy Cutlass M1860 is a replica of the model that replaced the M1841. The slightly curved blade has a wide fuller that ends in the area of the point where the broad backstops and the false edge begins. The blade geometry of the M1860 makes it extraordinarily light. Held in place by a riveted pommel and the full knuckle bow at the hand guard, the wooden grip of this naval cutlass is covered in leather and wrapped with twisted, golden wire. It includes a leather scabbard with a frog for holding the scabbard.

    Total length: 80 cm
    Blade length: 65.5 cm
    Grip length: 11 cm
    Weight: 0.86 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.3 mm
    Blade width (base): 3.1 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 11 cm
    Blade: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Brass

  • US Navy Cutlass M1860 - Gold

    Since 1860, the US Navy Cutlass M1860 Gold has been produced for the American armed forces at sea – just in time for the American Civil War! It replaces model M1841, and was inspired by the French Navy saber. The curved blade typical of sabers has a wide fuller that ends at the same place the broad back does – the spot where the false edge starts. Its blade geometry gives the US Navy Cutlass M1860 Gold a relatively light weight, but it was also made to be slightly top-heavy to give cuts more power. Held in place by a riveted pommel and the 24 K gold-plated full knuckle bow at the hand guard, the wooden grip of this naval cutlass is covered in leather and wrapped with twisted, golden wire. The US Navy Cutlass M1860 Gold comes with a matching leather scabbard with belt loop and a cloth bag for transport and storage.

    Total length: 81 cm
    Blade length: 65.5 cm
    Grip length: 11 cm

  • 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
    Weight: 1.43 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.3 mm
