bSaber - 1917 Cutlass/bbrManufacture ID: 88CSbrbrRemembered through the ages as the seafaring weapon of choice this sword has a history that stretches back to ancient times. Not only was it made famous in close quarter melees as pirates boarded treasure-laden galleons during the great "Age of Sail" it also has seen action as standard issue among many of the world's great navies.br /br /In 1917 the U.S. Navy decided to replace its Model 1860 cutlass which had been in continuous service for 57 years with a new model. Cold Steel's modern recreation of this classic fighting sword is as authentic as possible and virtually an exact copy of an original in the personal collection of Cold Steel President Lynn C. Thompson.br /br /Just like the original it features a half basket guard stamped out of heavy 18-gauge carbon steel blued to match the blade. The handle is fashioned from carefully shaped hardwood painted brown and secured to the full tang by three heavy brass cutler's rivets. br /br /Features blued blade to curtail rusting and short clipped points sharp enough for good penetration yet sturdy enough to resist bending or breaking.br /br /25" Blade (Cutlass)br /br /Specifications:br /Weight: 33.7 oz br /Blade Thick: 1/5" br /Blade Length: 25" br /Handle: 4 5/8" long.
