Pirates of the 16th century typically carried a few flintlock pistols and a cutlass or combinations of both. The short bladed cutlass was at home among the rigging and cluttered decks of a sailing ship, where a longer sword would have proved a disadvantage. Many a bloody-handed pirate of the 17th century clambered over the side of a gold laden galleon armed with a cutlass such as this. Known by many names- "hanger," "cuttoe," and "short saber" by infantry, or "cutlass" by sailors- this was an exceedingly popular short weapon.
