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.

Marlow White's Premium Navy Officer Sword Features

The following is an excerpt from the Marlow White Website:

Marlow White's Premium Navy Officer Sword and Scabbard is the finest Navy sword available. Marlow White and the United States Naval Academy developed this sword jointly. We invite you to check out the comparison page which shows the incredible difference between this sword and our regular sword. The Premium sword is 74% heavier than the regular (standard) sword. The specifications for the PREMIUM sword exceed the specifications for the standard Navy Officer Sword.

Please Note: The metal work on the sword belt will scratch the scabbard mouth the first time this sword is worn. There is no way to prevent this given the manner in which the sword is hung on the belt.

Blade - Stainless-steel blade with one groove on each side. Acid-etched with the USN pattern, so deep one can feel it with a fingernail. Hand-polished. Unsharpened ceremonial edge, but the blade has a sharp tip Scabbard: Stainless steel tube covered with genuine calf leather. Fittings: Brass, 24-carat gold-plated. Guard - Cast brass with "USN". 24-carat gold-plated Grip - Ivory-colored plastic grip with imitation sting-ray skin surface. More ornate gold-plated wire around the grip Pommel - Cast brass. 24-carat gold-plated.
