A cutter is the smallest ship in the Royal Navy, even smaller than a sloop-of-war. Fore-and-aft rigged single-masters they had multiple headsails, usually carried on a very long bowsprit. Very maneouvarable, with 6-10 guns, they were used to carry dispatches, coastal patrol and cutting out expeditions. They were generally commanded by a lieutenant.
