British Police Cutlass, c.1813-1817

57 cm curved blade etched GILL’S Warranted, 6 Princes Street, Soho, London, regulation brass hilt with D-shaped knuckle guard, ribbed leather covered grip.

It is possible that the blade began life as a cavalry sword (hence the early 19th century date of manufacture) and was later cut down and re-hilted for police use. There were tens of thousands of light cavalry swords made during the Napoleonic period, and a number of them were cut down and reused for other weapons such as naval and police cutlasses.
