Based on an original, this Pirate Cutlass (or Cutte) is accurately sized and antiqued to replicate a museum piece. The fully tempered, high carbon steel blade has a distal taper, with fullers on both sides along the spine, and is light and quick. The hilt fittings are cast in solid steel and blackened, matching the locket and chape of the leather-covered scabbard.
Pirates of the 16th century typically carried a few flintlock pistols and a cutlass or combinations of both. The short bladed cutlass was at home among the rigging and cluttered decks of a sailing ship, where a longer sword would have proved a disadvantage. Many a bloody-handed pirate of the 17th century clambered over the side of a gold laden galleon armed with a cutlass such as this. Known by many names- "hanger," "cuttoe," and "short sabre" by infantry, or "cutlass" by sailors- this was an exceedingly popular short weapon.


Comes with a dull edge that can be sharpened in our workshop for a cost of £25

    Top quality. A good blade and nicely aged. With an edge on it you can imagine it would make a very effective weapon.

    First of all the service from this company is amazing!! Arrived within a matter of days, with full and swift responses from Sue and Paul with any questions i had in regards to the sword, steel and the order.

    The sword itself, feels amazing to hold and looks are simple yet beautiful.
    upon further research of this sword.. actually found that the museum piece it is a copy of, is the sword that was used by Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Great company, Great sword! Great purchase!
