Short Swords & Cutlasses

Short Swords & Cutlasses

Unique selection of short and cutlass swords at MRL

Short swords have seen usage throughout history, from the Legionnaires to Renaissance squires and pirates. In ancient armies, short swords and large shields were a standard armament of the soldiers who fought against the long sarissa pikes of phalanxes. Limitations of copper, bronze, and iron regulated blade length at first. Later, the swords developed across many cultures leading to different types and shapes. After steel had become a common metal used to make bladed weapons, short swords stayed in use as with the Roman gladius which was an effective stabbing weapon.  

Museum Replicas offers a range of classic short swords. From the most famous of all short swords, the Roman Gladius, to the iconic Iberian Falcata, as well as cutlasses spanning the Renaissance to the American Civil War. These include pirate, English, Scottish, and Civil War naval cutlasses. High carbon steel has been used for most of the blades in the selection, making our short swords robust and able to maintain a good edge.
