Hilt of German cutlass
German cutlass, the cutlass has a French style hilt, which consists of a knuckle-guard formed by a large, teardrop-shaped stool connected by a bar of rectangular section to the pommel. On the obverse side of the connecting bar there is a large bowl guard, which is connected to the obverse half of the stool. The cap-shape French style pommel has an annulet near the end and a smooth dome; through this dome protrudes the tip of the tang, which is then burred over it.
