  • 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.

  • 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: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened

  • 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
    Weight: 0.9 kg

  • 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
    Blade thickness (CoP): 4.3 mm

  • Swept Hilt Rapier

    This swept hilt rapier was quite popular in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. Our version is hand forged by the skilled artisans at Windlass Steelcrafts and has a blade of high carbon steel with a diamond cross-section. This gives the blade firmness, yet allowing it to be flexible in action. The all-steel guard and ornate pommel are accented with a real bleached, polished bone grip. Includes a full leather scabbard with steel throat and shoe.

    This was one of our most popular rapiers for a number of years and was retired years ago. We are proud to bring back this elegant sword by popular demand for a limited time as one of our Windlass Classics.

    NOTE: Bone is a natural product and may have slight variations from the photo shown, giving each handle a unique "one of a kind" finish.

  • Swept Hilt Rapier

    This Swept-Hilt Rapier features classical lines, with a high-carbon steel flex-tempered blade, a stainless steel hilt (for reduced maintenance) and a hardwood grip. The hilt is of the same size as the museum piece on which it is based, providing an authentic “feel” in the user’s hand and weight and balance also match originals. The blade is interchangeable with our “Practical” blade (OH2255) which is designed for safety in rapier sparring. The matching Main Gauche (SH2198) may also be equipped with a sparring blade. 

    Our Renaissance-style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman’s education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe.

    Blade length: 93.1cm
    Grip length: 8.6cm
    Weight: 0.94kg
