Description: This cutlass is an amazing piece! The damascus steel blade has been highly carved and sculpted into a weapon reminiscent of a fantasy pirate - Mardi has an amazing imagination, impeccable design aesthetic, and the skill to execute his vision.
Although also used on land, the cutlass is best known as the sailor's weapon of choice. A naval side arm, its popularity was likely due to the fact that it was not only robust enough to hack through heavy ropes, canvas, and wood, it was also short enough to use in relatively close quarters, such as during boarding actions, in the rigging, or below decks. Another advantage to the cutlass was its simplicity of use. Employing it effectively required less training than that required to master a rapier or small sword, and it was more effective as a close-combat weapon than a full-sized sword would be on a cramped ship. The cutlass was also used on land, particularly by cavalrymen, as its curved blade made it useful for slashing in combat.
Starting with a many-layered, bold patterned damascus, the blade is amazing to behold. Mardi has carved the blade, shaping the spine so that it nicely complements the damascene pattern. The handle is formed from carved ebony and ancient walrus ivory, separated from the blade by copper spacers that have been fileworked and antiqued. The resulting handle has been accented with a copper web of organic shapes. A dramatically carved titanium guard will protect your fingers from enemy swords - and has been anodized to a brilliant green. The handle is finished off with an anodized titanium pommel. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
