Napoleonic Wars Era British Royal Navy Seaman’s Boarding Cutlass With 1804 Pattern ‘Figure Of 8’ Guard Hilt. Sn 18115:9 - 18115:9

The British Royal Navy due to its global presence and command of the sea was by far the most organised and trained of all the World major sea services and it's edged weapons used for boarding and repelling boarders reflected this. The Royal Navy was one of the first Navies in the 18th Century to begin standardising the personal edged weapons used by ordinary seaman. The 1804 Pattern Naval Seaman’s Boarding cutlass was the first regulation Naval cutlass issued to British Seamen (see page 241 of World Swords by Withers where a cutlass with 1804 pattern hilt the same as ours is illustrated). British Naval Boarding Cutlasses were made by a number of Government contracted manufacturers and with various grip designs and markings. This is a very good original British RN boarding Cutlass. It has the correct 1804 pattern hilt consisting of a black painted flat metal figure of 8 shaped guard and ribbed ebonised wood handle. The 24” long curved cutlass blade with fullers has just light staining and the cutting edge has no nicks or damage. There are no manufacturer or date marks on the blade or hilt. As is common the cutlass is without scabbard. The price for this piece of British Naval history includes UK delivery. Sn 18115:9
