Overview


Circa 1690
The crashing of waves, the roar of cannons, the shout of sea rogues through the foreboding mist - this new cutlass can''t help but unleash adventurous images. Scottish born Capt. William Kidd, we''re sure, would have favored this sword. As seen in period art, the Scottish Basket-Hilt was at times married to a cutlass blade (this one has a double edge for the first 9" of the blade).

The basket itself provided excellent hand protection and could deliver a hard blow in the crowded melee that ensued on board. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Includes scabbard.

Reviews


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?

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

I have had my eye on this beauty for quite some time, and when it was listed as the "Deal of the Day" I snapped it up. I ordered my Scottish Cutlass sharpened, and it arrived well-packed, with a plastic safety on the tip. It was not only beautiful, well-constructed, well-finished, sturdy and battle-worthy, it was evenly very sharp from the point to the cross guard. The basket hand guard is a work of art!  I am extremely pleased. It is honestly worth the full asking price. ERSJR, Hanover, Virginia

Excellent replica, and functional as well.  Everything I expected.
From: Roger, December 24, 2015
This sword exceeded my expectations.  The blade is quite thick a the ricasso, very much like a saber with a fuller.  There is no whippiness to this blade at all, as in none.  The basket-hilt in the pictures is an annoying almost chrome, however in real time the steel is a nicely oiled steel which will age well into a fantastic patina.  Everything on the sword fits tightly.  There is no rattling or looseness of the guard, pommel, or blade.  The scabbard is also very snug.  Not too tight but it friction fits perfectly, very much like a wooden saya.  

If you are looking for a cutlass, I'd sidestep this one.  It has alot of mass.  If you're looking for a Dussack/Tessack/Swiss Saber/Messer then this is the sword for you.  Although the blade is only 25 inches, I do not feel underarmed.  I would gladly fence this against an arming sword or common saber.  This blade moves with authority and grace.  The mass is such that I could easily beat another blade off center line and lunge into a vital target.  The point of balance is roughly 2.5 inches from the guard.  

I would gladly buy this sword again in a heartbeart.  While I do like Windlass swords, I was expecting their typical whippy blade.  Not so here. Also the temper on this thing is such that it rings like a bell.  Five star work here.
