Cutlass – Atrim Design

(3 customer reviews)


In stock

Additional information

This nimble and sure-striking cutlass was designed by Angus Trim who melded the broad blade of a cutlass with a complex swept hilt to create his own unique design. The broad blade of 9260 high carbon steel is optimized for powerful chops and sweeping slashes; its substantially thick ricasso gives the base of blade excellent durability before thinning considerably in the main striking portion of the blade to allow it to cut with minimized drag. Excess weight from the blade was removed with three fullers.

The swept hilt is cast from stainless steel with an antiqued finish and the wooden grip is bound in tight leather. Included with the sword is a thick leather scabbard which is richly embossed with tooled leather leaf-scroll design on a single side. A belt loop for wear completes the scabbard.

Please Note: The false edge is unsharpened by default. If you wish to have the false edge sharpened we can do so for a fee. If you wish to have the false edge sharpened, please indicate in the Special Instructions box upon checkout that you wish to have this modification.

    I’ve used this sword for almost everything, from cutting down vines and tall weeds, small branches and brush to fruit, tin cans and taitami. The blade has held up exceptionally well, better than I could have imagined actually with minimal maintenance besides regular oiling, basic cleaning and occasional waxing. It handles well enough, the swept hilt and handguard give it a little more weight on one side than the other which takes a few attempts to get used to but it cuts very well. The blade remains thin enough at the cutting section while still being rather thick at the ricasso and the robust spine giving it a decent amount of power as it tapers down the length of the blade. Despite all its been through, the factory edge is still exceptionally sharp and it has absolutely no major wear or damage along the edge. I cut into cans along the lip at vertical angles dozens of times with this rather forcefully with absolutely no damage to the edge, not to mention thin branches, which I consider impressive. The clip point is also well suited to thrusting and the false edge can be sharpened although I personally don’t sharpen mine. It’s a short sword keep in mind, but as for handling goes it’s slightly heavy for it’s size and shape. It’s certainly not the most “nimble” sword, but what you get in exchange for agility is an extremely resilient and powerful edge. My only other complaint is about the screw pommel. I know Gus swears by them and they can be tightened . . . but it just makes the sword feel flimsy. Mine started coming lose within a month of using it, although I will admit, I wasn’t exactly being gentle with it and it was nothing a little tightening up couldn’t fix. I can’t reiterate enough how much it impressed me with how tough it was however, and I would recommend this to anyone looking for an entry level cutlass for practice cutting.

    I’ve owned this blade for some time now, and it has stood up well.
    I don’t do a lot of cut testing, and it could use a sharpening, but that’s pretty easily remedied.

    On the whole this is one of my favorite swords in my collection!

    I’m not a sword guy. This is my first sword although I own some quality knives and pretty much bought it for its looks and size. I also watched a few videos about it. The unboxing: it came in a slightly oversize box (good) so it was well protected. It was wrapped in brown paper, lots of it and the box was filled with the same. There was also a plastic tip protector on it, nice.

    It was not the sharpest blade. It would catch on the back of a finger nail but it was not going cut a finger when you feel the edge. Probably a good thing. I can safely show it off then in a couple of weeks put a real edge on it.

    The only thing I can see wrong with it was the quillions were off of north south true by a few degrees. I think if I took them off and put them back on they might be straight. Not a real problem in a practical sense. And you have to take a good look to even notice it.

    Over all I’m quite happy with it.
