- For the inn, see Cutlass (inn)
A cutlass is a short and heavy sword with a slightly curved blade that can either be used in a stabbing or slashing manner. With a heavy basket hilt, it is more difficult for the wielder of a cutlass to be disarmed. Cutlasses are especially popular with pirates.
The cutlass is not listed in the 2nd Edition or 3.5 Edition of the Player's Handbook.
