    This top quality replica is modeled on the Model 1917 U.S. Navy cutlass. This sword design was the last regulation pattern for the U.S. Navy, and was issued to naval personnel and ship armories until being declared obsolete in 1949. This well-crafted and extremely functional replica measures 29 5/8" overall, and features the traditional cutlass blade design. The 25" high carbon steel blade is blued to prevent rust damage. The hilt is crafted from carefully shaped hardwood painted brown and secured to the full tang by three heavy brass cutler's rivets. The half basket guard is stamped out of heavy 18-gauge carbon steel and blued to match the blade. The authentically styled leather sheath offers brass and copper fittings. This is truly a superb item, and a valuable addition to any historical collection! Cold Steel, 88CS.

    I have many Cold Steel products from swords, knifes, a blow gun, and the list goes on and on! As far as this Cutlass goes it is one awesome blade, and possibly my favorite one from them. It's sharp and solid and absolutely a fine blade. Perfect for close quarters use. The blued blade is not dull or drab but very shiny and has a look of it's own. When I heft it I feel very secure and safe and as far as the so called blades that say "battle ready", trust me this piece is more than "ready"!! And as always again True Swords shipping is second to none, Fed Ex tracking is easy and delivery is never over three days. Again very satisfied.

    This is unbelievable! True Swords sells this cutlass $ 130 cheaper than the competition!!! The sword arrived in less than a week and was wrapped very meticulously. The sword itself is absolutely beautiful and also very functional. It came with a certificate detailing a two page long inspection list/battle worthiness tests. The cutlass was developed to be used in crammed places and makes a great weapon for close-quarter engagements encountered during home invasions. I keep mine handy close to my bed...

    Overall I am impressed with the sword, but the leather scabbard looks and feels a little chintzy for the price. After I got the coating of grease off the blade I realized that the pictures of the sword do not do it justice. The blued blade has a really nice shine. Ture Swords did a great job with the packaging, delivery time, and price. However, the greased up sword was shipped in the leather scabbord. So every time I put the sword in the sheath it gets a little bit of grease on it. I don't mean to complain, I am really glad I got the sword from you guys and I would do it again.

    I just received my Cold Steel Cutlass! I have swords that I've paid twice as much for and they don't match the quality of this blade, Cold Steel makes NO junk! They have videos on you-tube testing their swords. I contacted True Swords after a bad Internet experience with another vendor. I received an email the very next morning giving me answers to questions I had. True Swords is quality oriented in what they carry and their prices are awesome, I've checked around. How they packaged my cutlass alone was worth more than the shipping I paid and I received it within a week! I don't usually write reviews, but this has been the Best internet shopping experience. True Swords fefinitely has a new fan. Yes, I'm looking to buy from them again and recommend you do to.

    Well, the cutlass arrived today and it is a fine sight to behold! It came packaged extremely well. The cutlass is a super quality weapon. The price I paid was a great deal becuse I bothered to shop around alot. The s&h is the best I have seen on the web for a sword. I will be doing more business with TRUE SWORDS! For me, Cold Steel is King!!!!! Ray
