Releasing from my collection. One of my best pieces. Interesting stamped British naval figure-eight cutlass, Victorian era, ca. 1840 with it´s leather scabbard (with the hook and brass point) and leather pommel at the handguard. 1040 grams, 85 cm 33,4″ overall length, 74 cm 29,1″ blade length. Clean blade with blunt point and very small chips in sharp side, if you look closely. Nice, clearvisible, big crowned-VR mark (for Victoria Regina). Solid steel-ribbed grip and figure-8 guard, nice patina overall without rust. Remenants of black colour inside the handguard. Overall, the sword and the leather scabbard are in exceptionell good antique condition. However the stiching of the scabbard has loosened on the tip for about 10 cm and on the mouth side for about 20 cm. The leather holds still well together even without the thread, so I never thought about repairing it. Nevertheless for the age, a faboulous figure of eight model cutlass you will find very rarely.
