The cutlass was the mainstay blade of the seaman – short for close quarters combat, and thick-spined enough to hack man and rigging alike, the cutlass was a simple but savage weapon. The large guard protected the sailors hand from all manner of blades in a wild sea-melee. This Royal Navy 1804 pattern cutlass however, has one innovation that makes it a true tailor-made sea-blade; A cast-iron grip. The rapid fluctuations in temperature and humidity at sea wrought havoc on wooden grips – an iron grip greatly extended the life of the cutlass, saving the state money and keeping the amount of action-ready blades in a ship’s armory to a maximum.

This reproduction from Universal Swords is based on an example used in the Battle of Lake Erie. The blade is made from tempered high carbon steel and the hilt is of antiqued cast-iron. It comes with a stiff leather scabbard with a brass belt hook.
