Hilt of Norwegian cutlass
Norwegian cutlass, the hilt of a cutlass consists of a sheet steel guard with a circular shell and another circular disc of a similar size in the middle of the guard. The guard is engraved with the letters 'H K', there is a crown over the letter 'K'. The cutlass has a moulded iron grip. The flat steel blade is almost straight. The reverse of the blade is engraved with the letter 'J', which is probably part of the initials 'C.J' - Carl Johan. The scabbard is missing.
