Re: Boarding cutlass?
It is French. It is the briquet, typical infantry sabre of the Napoleonic Wars. It is in very good condition and the big part is you have the scabbard. Do you happen to have the frog as well? Nice old flintlock, is it from the same era? Any info on it like maker, caliber etc?? Nice family heirlooms.

A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that. Shane

We recall the case of the Shoshone war band which showed up complete with one 30-30 rifle per man the week after Pearl Harbor, and simply wanted to have the enemy pointed out to them. "We hear there's a war going on and we want to go fight it." Jeff Cooper
