Two Well Documented ca 1800-1812 British but Most Likely American "Private Purchase" Naval Cutlasses Used Aboard American (or British) Privateers or Armed Merchantmen during the Napoleonic Wars, Barbary Pirate Wars, and/or War of 1812.


These Two Cutlasses are Most Likely an American-made copies of the British 1804 Pattern Cutlass Because of the Figure 8 Iron Hilt Design w/ Lower Disk Being More Heart Shaped, the Turned Wooden Grip, the Large Rolled Quillon on the Top Disk Guard, and Slightly Almost Imperceptible Upturned Flat Falchion Blade Which is an Indication of American Production, not British. Possibly, Though Not Likely, They Were Period Re-bladed Using the British Figure 8 Guards and an American turned Wooden Handle and Blade.

Private Purchase Cutlass #2 above has been professionally restored and preserved sometime in the very distant past and then well cared for!

The Above Photographs Illustrate two ca 1800 to 1812 British or American (most likely American) Unmarked "double disk" or figure-8 Naval Cutlass with slightly curving flat falchion blade. Most of the double-lobed figure-8 naval cutlasses of this period have the straight blade and round metal grip, while this cutlass has a turned wooden grip and slightly curved flat blade. During the early 1800's this type of Sea Service Naval Cutlass (British 1804 pattern) was also widely used by the American Navy, Armed Merchantmen, and Privateers during the Napoleonic Wars, War of 1812, and the Barbary Pirate Wars. The photographs (1-4) with a green background are the first cutlass and the photographs with the white background are the second cutlass. The first cutlass was found in the UK while the second cutlass was found here in the US.

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.
