Boarders away! The cutlass was the favorite weapon of both pirates and sailors during the Age of Sail. It was the perfect weapon in the close quarters action when boarding or defending a ship. Measuring 38" overall, this model features a 29 1/4" blade constructed from steel with an authentic aged finish and heavy blood groove. The black handle is accented with cast metal guard and pommel, while the wooden scabbard features a cast metal throat with pirate emblem. This sword is a great addition to any collection!
