A cutlass is a short, curved sword with a single sharp edge.
[This content was created by Paizo Publishing LLC for the Pathfinder rules but is not from the Pathfinder RPG product line.]
Pirates favor cutlasses because the blade is sharp enough to cut through rigging (and enemy sailors) but is short enough to use in crowded shipboard melees. The cutlass counts under the Weapon Finesse feat.
