The crashing of waves, the roar of cannons, the shout of sea rogues through the foreboding mist - this cutlass can't help but unleash adventurous images. Scottish born Capt. William Kidd, we're sure, would have favored this sword. As seen in period art, the Scottish Basket-Hilt was at times married to a cutlass blade. This one has a double edge for the first 9" of the blade.

The basket itself provided excellent hand protection and could deliver a hard blow in the crowded melee that ensued on board. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts and comes factory sharp. Includes scabbard.
