It’s pretty blurry but the hilt looks like this one http://www.icollector.com/FRENCH-NAPOLEONIC-ARTILLERY-SWORD-BRASS-24-BLADE_i12385394 minus the guard. If you need a clearer picture, I’ll be able to take one in maybe a week.

So a full brass grip with a lil swept hilt dealy and a short cutting blade. That looks like every fascine knife of the 19th century so we’ll have to defer to the expert @victoriansword :y

British Pattern 1859 Cutlass Bayonet with “Verney’s Catch”

Heavy steel bowl guard with fixing for the bayonet bar and slot for Verney’s scabbard catch. The grip is formed of two scales of pressed chequered leather secured by four pins. The blade is slightly curved and is unfullered. The tip is sharpened on both sides, the back being 12.5 in (318mm) long.
The lether scabbard has polished steel chape and scabbard mouth. Verney’s spring catch is fixed to the left side of the scabard. On the right side is the frog stud.

The catch design was proposed by Lieut. Verney, RN and approved for fitting in the List of Changes (para. 369) on 19 September 1861. This example is likely to be the sealed pattern version. The blade was made in Solingen and accepted as such, the likely maker was Weyersberg Bros.

British Pattern 1859 Cutlass Bayonet

This is a good example of a British Naval Saber Bayonet pattern 1859. It is mounted with a straight spearpoint German made blade that measures 26 ¾ inches in length. The blade has now richly patined with age and does remains nice with just a few minor nicks to the cutting edge. The steel cup guard continues to wear some of the original black painted finish and does remain in nice condition as well with no dings. The checkered leather grips do reflect age and although are weathered, also remain nice and in tight and sturdy condition. Overall measuring 32 3/8 inches in length.
