The French Naval Cutlass M1833 was the premier naval cutlass for most of the European navies throughout the 19th century and was a prized weapon by the enlisted sailor. This was such a sought after weapon that most navies patterned their cutlasses after this French model. As previously discussed this includes the US Navy which patterned it's Civil War Naval Cutlass the M1860 after this French Naval Cutlass.

This particular naval cutlass being offered for sale has the following attributes: It is dated 1842 which is well pre-French Revolution, and the provenance in written script found on the spine of the blade attests to this, "MANUFre Rle de CHATELLERAULT Jaie 1847". In addition, on the blade there are the two standard large anchors very clear, lightly stamped on both sides of the blade about 3" down from the ricasso. The obverse ricasso itself shows two cartouche or poincons, 1) oval with a 5 pointed star above the capital letter A surrounded by laurel or leaves and 2) a shield with a 5 pointed star above the capital letter W.

There is 100% of japanning left on both the ouside and inside steel guard and grip. On the hilt's inside quillon are the two cartouche of the size and location of where they should be. However they can only be recognized by removing the black japanning which we are not going to do. On the reverse side of the guard parallel to the grip is the poincon of a small ordinance anchor which is clearly visible. On the outside quillon there is a deep poincon resembling a K or an X, but possibly this is a machine mark left from the time of production.

The scabbards leather is a bit dried out but sill very usuable and grips the ricasso of the blade firmly. Both the brass tip and throat are held firmly in place. The obverse side of the throat and tip do not have any marks, and are void of anything except the staples and frog bracket. On the reverse side of the throat is the ordinance pointcon of a small anchor and no other marks.
