Cutlass or Hanger?

Post by paul.mercer » Mon Jan 21, 2019 11:25 pm

This may be a bit later than 1860, but in 'Nelsonian' days when boarding ships was in vogue the crew were often issued with 'Hanger', so what is the difference between that and a Cutlass - is it that one is curved and the other straight?
