With their deeply blued blades and rich Malaysian sal wood handles, Cold Steel®'s 1917 Series blades are instantly recognizable! These knives and swords all share the same sleek lines and utilitarian, practical design. Evoking a spirit of adventure, from the American Frontier to the High Seas, the 1917 series of swords, sabers, cutlasses and knives are perfect for any historical reenactment group from the 1830's onward, Cowboy Action Shooters, Civil War or Naval Battle reenactment, even modern military groups.
In 1917, the U.S. Navy decided to replace its Model 1860 cutlass, which had been in continuous service for 57 years, with a new model. Cold Steel®'s modern interpretation of the classic 1917 U.S. Naval Cutlass is as authentic as possible. For instance, the Cold Steel® 1917 Cutlass features the curved blade, short clip point and iconic half-basket guard as well as a deep blue finish on all metal parts. The scabbard and belt loop are also highly accurate reproductions and are fashioned from high-quality leather complete with brass and copper furniture.
