Cold Steel 88CS 1917 Cutlass. Remembered through the ages as a seafaring weapon of choice, the cutlass has a history which 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.

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. The Cold Steel 1917 Cutlass features the signature curved blade approximately 25" in length and 15/16" wide. Its short clipped point is sharp enough for good penetration yet sturdy enough to resist bending or breaking. To resist rust, the blade is blued.

Just like the original, our cutlass features a half basket guard stamped out of heavy 18-gauge carbon steel and blued to match the blade. The cutlass can be worn comfortably at the side on a pistol belt without chafing its owner. The handle is fashioned from carefully shaped hardwood painted brown and secured to the full tang by three heavy brass cutler's rivets.

The reproduction scabbard is made entirely of high quality leather, brass and copper.

Specifications: Overall Length: 29 3/8", Blade Thick: 1/5, Blade Length: 24 3/4", Weight w/sheath: 42.8 oz., Steel: 1050 Carbon Steel.

Just an FYI as to why I do business with you. Last Christmas after calling on the status of a knife I ordered, I learned it was out-of-stock. Ultimately you took care of me and expressed mailed-at no charge, the replacement I ordered. The knife arrived on time + you threw in a free small CTR folding knife as well (nice)..
