Antique NAVAL Style Single Edge SPARRING Cutlass Style IRON GUARD
With Blunted Tip and Wood Grip
Here we present an antique U.S. Ames Model 1860 Naval Cutlass, made in 1862, in Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts. The Sparring Cutlass is a very popular weapon that greatly resembles the Hanger Sword. It is a short side sword that hangs on the belts of those who use it and has a slightly curved but broad blade. It has a simple design that is made for close-quarter combat situations.
The blade of the Cutlass Sword is single-edged or only sharpened on one side. The blade can be found in different shapes, such as being slightly curved or strongly curved. Sometimes the blade is straight throughout two-thirds of the blade, and then it curves. Despite the different blade shapes, the most common characteristic is that it’s broader than a typical sword as it’s shorter and used in close-combat scenarios.
The overall condition is good. The blade has an evenly aged gray patina. The tip has been rounded. Solid hilt overall with a bare wooden grip.
Overall Length: 31 inches.
Blade Length: 25 inches.
