Original British 18th Century Naval Boarding Cutlass with Armorer Mark
Original Item: Only one available. A British Naval Boarding Cutlass of the figure of Eight guard style with plain all steel grip in use from about 1750 being replaced in 1804 with a similar model but then having a cast grip displaying 18 horizontal groves.
It is felt that these figure of eight or double disc cutlasses may date from as early as 1727 with a delivery of 1,000 cutlasses from the British cutler Thomas Hollier. Issued with 29" blades these are known to be both straight and curved bladed.
Our slightly curved bladed example here has a 29" unfullered blade and bears a deep armouer's mark stamping on the left hand side directly in front of the hand guard making this a nice tight example of an early British Naval "figure of eight" Cutlass from the 1700s ready to display.
