British Royal Navy 1845 P1845 Pattern Naval Cutlass

The P1845 cutlass ended the long 100 year tradition and era of the figure 8 hilt and flat straight blade. The P1845 had a 50+ Year Service Life with only a Slight Modification to Shorten the Blade in 1889. The Particular Naval Cutlass Illustrated Here was Manufactured by Wilkinson Pall Mall.

The naval cutlass was also sometimes known as a navy sword or naval short sword as the blade was sometimes significantly shorter than some of the 30" plus blades found on infantry and calvary swords.

moreover the sweeping blade of the cutlass was called in french the "falchion" which distiguishes it from the straigher sword blades.
