We are proud to offer this accurate reproduction of a beautiful and rare United States 1860 Naval Officer's Cutlass.  Naval Officers had an option to purchase Non Regulation Swords or Cutlasses, which was a standard policy in all branches of the U. S. Armed Services.  While aboard a warship, officers preferred the short 26 inch cutlass to the longer decorative 32 - 34 inch sword.  The 1860 Naval Cutlass incised "USN" (United States Navy) into a beautiful scalloped shell design stamped into the guard was the model of choice.  The Ames Sword Company catalog refers to this model as the "Officer's Cutlass" and since then this designation has been used.
The Chief Petty Officer
Both the Chief Petty Officer and any Regular Officer were authorized to use this U. S. 1860 Officer's Cutlass.  The Chief Petty Officer rank is the highest rank that an enlisted person can achieve, and while the Chief Petty Officer is technically an enlisted person (in charge of all enlisted persons), the Chief Petty Officer, as well as all Officers ARE AUTHORIZED TO wear this Officer's Cutlass.
All enlisted men were given the standard 1860 Naval Cutlass at no cost, however, the Chief Petty Officer could purchase and wear this 1860 Officer's Cutlass.  On the other hand, all Regular Officers were required to purchase their own sword.
The 1860 Naval Officer's Cutlass features the USN embellished polished solid brass scalloped shell basket, with a comfortable leather grip with twisted wire.  The blade measures 26 1/2 inches (67.3 cm) and is made of tempered high carbon steel.  The blade is stamped with the authentic Navy Anchor and Maker's / Inspector's Marks.  The blade is a 0.200 inch (5.1 mm) thick and 1.16 inch (2.9 cm) wide and custom engraving is available for up to three lines of text.  When ordering please specify the desired location and orientation of the engraving.  This Officer's Cutlass measures 32 inches (81.3 cm) overall and weighs 2 pounds (0.9 kg).  The leather scabbard is complete with the leather "Frog" for hanging from a belt.  The leather scabbard has the regulation copper rivets on the backside and the leather scabbard and frog weigh 12.7 ounces (360 grams).  The 1860 Naval Officer's Cutlass comes with an unsharpened blade, just like the extremely rare antique cutlasses produced by the original manufacturers.  However, you can easily sharpen the blade yourself.
The U.S. 1860 Naval Officer's Cutlass with the frog and leather scabbard sells for only $169.  We also offer the similar 1860 Naval Cutlass with Leather Scabbard.
