Stirrup Hilt Long Bladed Version of 1845
Pattern Naval Cutlass, for sale
In good condition, a bespoke (not official) variation of the British
Royal Naval 1845P Cutlass.
This cutlass has been period made especially; there is old pitting
/ rust around / under the tang nut (this is not a recent marriage).
It has an 1845P cavalry blade, a 1796P cavalry stirrup hilt, and
an 1845P naval cutlass grip. Possibly a merchant navy officer's
weapon as there are absolutely no markings. Though there are some
old nicks to the cutting edge, so this could have been a marine
infantry / artillery officer's sword during the Crimean War. If
you like unusual / rare cutlasses, this one is for you!
The very long 35 inch blade is in good condition but has several
old nicks to its cutting edge. The entire cutlass is a little loose
now (these things are literally simply held tight by the tang nut),
but is generally very good.
They do not get much rarer than this. Yours for £400. Please
quote item reference AD19. Full sized / additional photos available
upon request. Box 0428-1.18 (1.954).
