The cutlass sword is a short, broad sabre or slashing sword, with a straight or slightly curved blade sharpened on the cutting edge, and a hilt often featuring a solid cupped or basket-shaped guard. It was a common naval weapon during the Age of Sail. The cutlasses are famous for being used by pirates. Pirates used these weapons for intimidation as much as for combat. Often no more than to gripping their hilts induced a crew to surrender. They also used the flat of the blade to force compliance or responsiveness during interrogation.
The longsword sword is made from pattern welded Damascus steel. Pattern welded Damascus steel is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel. There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers. The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC. High carbon Damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel. The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords. The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions. This makes the perfect steel for swords with a Rockwell Hardness of 55-56 HRC. The handle is wood with Damascus steel bolsters. It comes with a leather sheath, and has 352 layers.

It’s beautiful well crafted and came nice and sharp. The only complaint I have is that it’s much heavier then the other cutlass I got on here.
Sword shipped quickly and I was offered great customer service. Will be sharpened soon and given I want another sword, I would highly consider ordering from here again!
