Just before the famous naval battle of Trafalar, a new pattern of the Boarding cutlass was issued. The popular 18th century design of the figure '8' iron hand guard was retained but the horn or leather hand grip was abandoned.

In 1804 an iron grip was introduced, greatly extending the life of the cutlass.
