What is the difference between a Sword and a Cutlass?

The sword is worn by US Navy Officers and the Cutlass is worn by US Navy Chief Petty Officers (CPO).  In physical appearance, the sword is a straight blade with ornate etching and the cutlass is a curved blade with a rounded hand guard.  Think of the cutlass as something similar to a pirate sword.

How do I know which length to buy?

The Navy Officer Sword is available in various lengths to best suit the height of the person wearing the blade. It may be best for you to contact us to assist in selecting the proper size.  The CPO Cutlass is a fixed length blade - one size fits all.
