Hilt of cutlass
Cutlass, the hilt of the cutlass consists of a guard of black steel bent round from the tang to form an oval shell, the centre part of the trailing edge of which is bent over. The knuckle-guard is enlarged to form an oval nearly as large as the shell. The grip is cast-iron. The steel blade is straight, flat with a 137 mm false edge. The scabbard of black leather has a steel locket with frog button and chape.
