History

A naval side-arm, its popularity was likely because it was not only robust enough to hack through heavy ropes, canvas, and wood. But also, short enough to use in relatively close quarters, such as during boarding actions, in the rigging, or below decks.

Another advantage to the cutlass was its simplicity of use.

Employing it effectively required less training than that required to master a rapier or small sword.

The use of cutlasses by pirates is well documented in contemporary sources, notably by the pirate crews of William Fly, William Kidd, and Stede Bonnet. French historian Alexandre Exquemelin reports the buccaneer François l’Ollonais using a cutlass as early as 1667. Pirates used these weapons for intimidation as much as for combat, often needing no more than to grip their hilts to induce a crew to surrender, or beating captives with the flat of the blade to force their compliance or responsiveness to interrogation.

Owing to its versatility, the cutlass was as often an agricultural implement and tool as it was as a weapon.
