Carried during the 1600’s and 1700’s, this type sword was also called a hanger.  (The term cutlass wasn’t used as an exclusive term for the sailor’s fighting sword until the 1800’s.) It was frequently used by officers as a close quarters battle weapon because of its compact dimensions. This replica has a tough, tempered high carbon steel blade and a solid brass heart shaped guard characteristic of the period. Leather scabbard with brass throat and tip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts with the same care and attention to detail lavished onto the swords crafted for government defense contracts all over the world. Hand forged, high carbon steel blade. Can be sharpened for an additional fee.
  • Overall: 30-1/2"
  • Blade: 25-1/2" long, 1-1/2" wide, 1/4 thick
  • Wt: 2 lbs / 8 oz

This is a nicely balanced cutlass. The blade is well made and seems to hold an edge. The one piece brass guard, basket and grip are a problem, however. The grip is small and tapers towards the pommel. Combined with the natural slickness of the bare brass it is easy to lose control of the weapon without a leather glove. Combine this blade with the basket and grip from the Scottish cutlass and I would buy several.
