Description of the Product
Cutlass is short, broad and typically slightly curved sword commonly used on ships. Although used as well on land, these were perfect for naval combat in tight quarters. 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 William “Captain” 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 23 cm (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 of high carbon steel. Includes scabbard with steel fittings. Original circa 1690.
