US Federal Navy Nathan Starr 1808 Contract Model M1808 Naval Cutlass

RARE! Museum Quality and Investment Grade - Perfect example of a Model M1808 Nathan Starr 1808 Contract Naval Cutlass fully and properly marked! The turned wooden maple grip and iron ferrules of the cutlass are in excellent condition. The M1808 is known as "the cutlass that fought the War of 1812".

While the blade and maple grip were similar in design to the M1797 double disk cutlass, the M1808 is the first formal regulation departure from the past generations "figure 8" or dual disk cutlass used from the early-mid 1700s to the late 1790s used by both British, Colonial, and American navies. 2000 M1808 models were known to be produced, possibly more both to the American navy and Privateers.
