Scottish Cutlass Sword

By: Windlass Steelcrafts

Windlass Steelcrafts

Captain William Kidd Cutlass

The crashing of waves, the roar of cannons, the shout of sea rogues through the foreboding mist - this new functional Scottish cutlass can't help but unleash adventurous images. This sword is very unique in design with a broad tip and furnished in a very Scottish styled basket hilt. The inspiration for this piece is the notorious privateer turned pirate Captain William Kidd. Scotlands son William Kidd was tasked with hunting down several known pirates with a letter of marque signed by William III of England. His ship named “Adventure” was a hybrid sailing vessel perfectly suited for battling pirates. Outfitted with 34 cannons and a crew of 150 men with the addition of oars increased it's maneuverability when engaged in battle. As history turned out Captain Kidd was not very successful at tracking down pirates so out of desperation started hunting and looting ships earning a reputation for excessive cruelty. William was tried hanged for piracy in London. Karma delivered it's cruel revenge at the gallows when the rope broke in the middle of his execution, leaving him to painfully wait for the hang man to string a second rope.

Forged in Fire

This sword is “battle ready” and made for the use and abuse of western martial arts. It's blade is hand forged from high carbon steel and quenched to a perfect temper. The blade is unique for a cutlass with about a third of the blades length widened at the tip making a forward pulling and intimidating sword. When sharpened this blade makes a very effective slasher where most falcata styled blades excel. As seen in period art, the Scottish Basket-Hilt was at times married to a cutlass blade. The basket itself provided excellent hand protection and could deliver a hard blow in the crowded melee that insued onboard. It comes with a nice thick leather scabbard stained in a deep forest green.
