Pirate Swords, Cutlass & Knives

Pirate swords and cutlasses define the bold buccaneer more than any other weapon. But, what type of blades did pirates use? One was the straight-bladed small sword, which was the perfect thrusting weapon and required some skill to wield. The light spadroon was another that was good for thrust attacks and was also a useful slashing blade. Perhaps the most famous of all pirate weapons is the pirate cutlass. This single-edged, slightly curved or straight sword could hack through ropes, flesh, and bone. In addition, the rapier may have seen action during the initial days of the “Golden Age of Piracy.” Pirate knives included the dagger, which came in handy when fighting in tight spaces or faced with tasks such as cutting sail, rope, or food. Finally, there was the dirk, a smaller version of the dagger, which could also be used as a throwing weapon.

Review of: Scottish Basket-Hilt Cutlass

Received mine a few days ago with MRL's ALWAYS fast and excellent shipping. Being Scottish and German myself makes this cutlass that much more awesome. I was lucky enough to catch this as a deal of the day, however I was literally days away from ordering it at regular price. I also ordered it with the sharpening service, which is honestly my only complaint, the front of the blade is very nicely sharpened, however the 9" back swedge was left dull, which to my understanding was to be sharpened. But no big deal, I have a nice sword sharpener that worked perfectly. On to the sword. Perfection.
Not a single scratch, the edge is perfect, not a stitch out of place, the blade is perfect, the grip is tight and flawless, the fittings are tight and nicely polished, the basket hilt is solid as a rock and also finished nicely, the pommel is perfect and provides more balance. I really am blown away by this one, and I own roughly 25 mid to high end blades. If you have EVER considered buying this cutlass don't waste any more time and grab one, or two! Side note this cutlass is not available from K

Review of: Golden Coast Cutlass

This is a cutlass that ErroI Flynn or Basil Rathbone would be proud of!  I purchased the Golden Coast cutlass as part of the Black Friday madness, and I don't regret a doubloon of the purchase price, Matey.  There does not appear to be any of the faux-gold wash on either the half-basket hilt or blade, which IMHO is all to the good:  Why gild the lily?  The blade is very plain, with no fuller and (truth to tell) a "soft" ridge line.  The basket and grip are large enough to accommodate a gauntleted hand, which is one of my litmus tests for a truly functional weapon.  Overall, an admirable rendering of this swashbuckling sword type!

Review of: Scottish Basket-Hilt Cutlass

As I am always looking for the perfect hand-to-hand combat weapon, I was initially disinclined to consider a THREE POUND short sword.  But after reading the reviews (and needing the perfect complement to my pirate outfit), I took the plunge and ordered this magnificent weapon.  Now I am convinced that this may be the perfect weapon.  When I took it out of the box, the fit and finish were as everyone has described it - perfect.  But here is what impressed me.  I stood the box up that it came in.  I figured, "Why not?" and took a swipe. This is an empty, LIGHT cardboard box - not one of those thick paper tubes mounted on a pole they test katanas with, which would have been no problem for this cutlass.  It sliced that box right in two.  Amazing.  Then I took a smaller, lighter box.  Same results.  This thing is incredibly well-balanced. So well balanced, in fact, that it doesn't feel like a three pound sword.  It feels lighter and more maneuverable. And it also feels like it has a shield ATTACHED to it, the hand guard and basket offer such phenomenal coverage.  All that said, if you have a buckler in one hand and this monster in the other, who - short of anyone holding a PIKE - would be inclined to challenge you?

Review of: Pirate's Companion Sword

I own several cutlasses and I must say this is one of my favorites.  It has a nice comfortable grip. Construction is very sturdy...everything is tight.  I opted for the sharpening service and as always it is second to none...excellent service.

Review of: Scottish Basket-Hilt Cutlass

Great! A beautiful sword and the sharpening service was great. It is  heavy and stout, and probably could do quite a bit of damage.

Review of: The English Cutlass

The quality of materials used to make this Cutlass are excellent along with the price. The blade is good steel. The length of the grip will only fit very small hands. The grip length needs to be increased by at least one inch to fit a medium to large hand. As is, the Cutlass is unusable. If this weapon is for display only, it gets a 5. If it were to be used as a true Cutlass, it gets a 1. The brass basket curves back and presses on the first finger and knuckle  painfully due to the short grip. I own a large collection of swords purchased from MRL. This is a keeper for display only. The sheath fits the blade well but the brass tip on the sheath was so pointed and sharp I had to round the tip with a stone for safety reasons. My advice for MRL is to make sure your Quality Control Department gets more involved in sizing specifications.
