Over 200 years of military history are captured in this beautifully boxed miniature sword. While the first Royal Navy pattern sword was issued to officers in 1805, the impressive but impractical design led to it being superseded by a solid-hilt design in 1827 before a standardised blade was adopted in 1846. The current single-edged straight blade became standard issue in 1929. The Royal Navy Sword today carried by Commissioned Officers features a gold-plated brass hilt, white fish-skin grip and a distinctive and elegant brass lion pommel. Length is 30cm.
