Well Documented British-made Hunting Cutlass or Cuttoe adopted from the French 'Couteaux de Chasse' and also used as a Naval Officers Personal Sidearm and Found Aboard Privateers or Pirates of the Main. The Blade Maker Marked "Harvey" a Family of British Cutlers from the 17th thru 19th Century. The quillon on this cutlass is missing, but does not detract. Note the Detailed Nude Figurines Frolicing in Various Scenes Depicting a Bachanalia on the All Brass Hilt with Bone Grip!

The below photographs illustrate a classic example of a mid to late 17th century to early 18th century hunting cuttoe, or naval cutlass worn by Naval Officers as Personal Side Weapons as well as Officers of Privateers and Pirates alike as well documented in "Boarders Away".

The patina on the all brass hilt with bone grip and construction all point to mid 1600's to early 1700's provenance. The inclusion of female nudes and male satyrs frolicing in varying scenes and drinking wine as if in a Bachanalia are carefully hand detailed on all aspects of the hilt.

This certainly indicates that this was made for wear by a rakish fellow, and not for the fine company of gentlemen and ladies out on the town, but certainly something a well-to-do Privateer or Naval officer would wear in the 17th and early 18th Century!

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.
