Withsuch fine decoration and yet functional in its form the robust battlefield short sword could serve dual purposes and affirm the status of its owner.The sword is successor to the earlier European Cuttoe orHanger, both names originating from the form’s use as a European hunting weaponin the seventeenth century. The name “cuttoe” is an anglicization of the Frenchterm 'couteaux de chasse', meaning “hunting knife” In the late Seventeenth andearly Eighteenth Centuries, hangers became popular secondary weapons forInfantrymen in many of the Armies of Europe. The length of hanger blades istypically between 23 and 27 inches with this example being right at 28; obviously a little longer compared to its predecessor but still short for the Era when compared to the swords used by many Officers in the Army of France. This Exceptional Example Remains inOverall Fine Issued Condition as Photographed with some wear and pitting to the blade asseen, An Exceptional Addition to Any Napoleonic Wars Period Collection - An Outstanding Candidate for Display in a Library or War Room;Recent Acquisition & Presented as Acquired, Exceptionally Rare
