These swords are classified as “battle ready swords” however, we use the term “functional swords” interchangeably.

How to Maintain Your Sword

A forged sword is very strong but it won't last forever unless you follow these few easy tips to keep your sword looking like new throughout generations.

Did you know?

The pirate or naval cutlass wasn't as long as the typical swords carried on land. During a military battle at sea or an attack by pirates a “boarding” was a common tactic. There was great value in a captured ship but if that wasn't the prize, you would certainly want to loot it before you sunk her to the depths for Davey Jones. A lot of fighting would take place on and below the deck where there was not much room to maneuver. A shorter sword had a great advantage over any great sword in tight quarters.
