VERY RARE! Only Two Known to Exist with the Royal Cypher Indicating Goverment Property! A British Royal Navy Model 1814 Pattern Cutlass made for the Sea Services! This Well Documented British Royal Navy 1814 Pattern Naval Cutlass was the British Navy's Upgraded Version of the Classic Model 1804. The Model 1814 has the classic Figure 8 Guard kept from the mid-late 18th century cutlass but now with a large upturned Falchion Blade Fullered for better balance! The cast iron grip like the model 1804 has vertical ribs but no longer any intersecting horizontal ribs. This particular specimen has the King George Royal Cypher stamped onto the blade and is only the second known 1814 pattern to have it! How RARE is that!

British Royal Navy Figure 8 Naval Cutlass 1814 Pattern, Trafalgar, War of 1812

British Royal Navy Figure 8 Naval Cutlass 1814 Pattern  War of 1812

Above photos illustrate the British Model P1814 pattern cutlass. Note the long upturned falchion blade with single fuller from the hilt ending about 8" from the tip.

The upturned falchion blade is sleek and beautifully handsome with the single fuller measuring almost 19" from the ricasso to where it ends about 7 1/2" from blade tip .... The overall weight of the 1814 is much lighter than the 1804 and it is very well balanced and just "feels right"... (Kind of like how the French M1833 or the lighter US Navy's M1860 just feel right)..

1 3/8" blade width at the ricasso, 31 1/4" overall length, 26 5/8" blade length..

Above photos show the vertically ribbed grip which is a bit thinner and lighter than the model 1804. Gilkerson noted it as being "sinuous" which is a perfectly apt description.

Note the above King George III Royal Cypher indicating government property and that it was put into service. This is only the second known Model 1814 with this stamped cypher verifying sea service use and part of the Royal Navy's armament inventory. The other specimen is found in Gilkerson's "Boarders Away" reference book, page 84.

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.
