The Cutlass is a secret tool obtainable within Tinker's Construct. The sword is created like any other sword; with a tool rod and a sword blade. The Full Guard stencil, unlike other sword crossbars, uses 3 items of whatever material you choose and the Full Guard material counts towards the final tool durability. Regular sword guards use .5 of a material and do not count towards the final durability.

How to make the Cutlass

In order to make the cutlass, you must have:

  1. x1 - sword blade
  2. x1 - full guard
  3. x1 - tool rod

To make the cutlass, in the tool forge, select either the broad sword, long sword, or the rapier.

Replace the guard slot with the full guard.

The secret nature of the cutlass makes it hidden from most Tinker's Construct users. A person "in the know" can surprise opponents with a weapon they didn't know existed!
