A scarce and original French Late-18th Century Military Naval Cutlass. With brass hilt and wooden grip. This cutlass is similar to the “Sartines” type that is noted in ‘Le Sabre D’Abordage’ by Michel Petard (pages 69-71) and differs in that it has a simple knuckleguard as opposed the unusual pierced and rounded knuckleguard. These French naval cutlasses have a very distinctive raised pommel. The blade is wide and slightly curved and typical of French Napoleonic boarding cutlasses of the period. Condition of the cutlass is good with a dark and smooth age patina to the blade. Blade length is 24.5 inches (29 inches overall).
