Hand Forged Pirate Captain Cutlass with solid brass furniture - The Bruce Brookhart Collection from Kingdom of Arms
This form of cutlass or hanger saw wide use thru out the western world both in the hunt and in war. With its short blade it was ideal for use in crowded shipboard conflicts but was also prized for it’s ease to carry as it was small and light and allows for freedom in movement when running or riding. This example would be at home at a sea captain’s side or beneath a gentleman’s overcoat.
