British Royal Navy 1858 P1858 Pattern Naval Cutlass Bayonet Arsenal Marked with Crown over the letter "S" above the number "8"

The P1858 combination cutlass bayonet while sounding good on paper saving money and storage space was shortlived and not readily accepted as a serious weapon. It was found to be too heavy and unwieldly used as a bayonet and too unbalanced to be used as a cutlass.

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.
