1845 Pattern Royal Navy Cutlass

Code: 11771


A good British 1845 Pattern Royal Navy Cutlass.

Black painted sheet steel bowl guard and ribbed iron grip in good condition with some light rust and pitting.

The slightly curved, unfullered, blade measures almost 27 inches, bearing various inspection markings to both ricasso's, and is dated (18)88. There is a faint makers marking on the spine, partically obscured, but possibly "Heighington". The blade has been service sharpened.

There is a tiny amount of movement between the guard and blade if pressure is exerted. It may benefit from having a new leather washer made and fitted.

This example bearing a brass elongated diamond plaque to the front of the bowl guard, bearing the rack number.

A good untouched example which will improve with a light clean.

Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched.
