What is a cutlass sword?

Answer

A cutlass sword is a short, wide, cutting blade commonly used as a naval weapon. It has a straight or marginally curved sharp edge with a hilt that often has a solid-cupped or basket-shaped guard.

A cutlass was a popular sailors weapon, since it is tough enough to slice through thick ropes, canvas and wood. Its length is advantageous in close quarters, such as underneath decks, down the ropes or during on-board actions.

A cutlass sword is easy to use and does not require as much training as a small sword. It is a more effective combat weapon than a full-sized sword. It is an agricultural tool as much as it is a weapon, being used in tropical forests and sugar cane farms.
