Hilt of French cutlass
French cutlass, the hilt of the cutlass consists of a rectangular sectioned knuckle-guard, which swells to form a roughly oval shell, ending in a slightly upturned tongue. The cutlass has a large sheet iron guard, which is cast in one piece and covers practically the whole of the knuckle-guard and shell. It has a beaded after-edge. This pattern of cutlass was introduced in 1833. The word 'Royale' indicates that the cutlass was made before the end of the French monarchy in 1848.
