The year 1827 brought about a radical change to the design of the British Naval Officers swords.Out went the Napoleonic stirrup hilt to be replaced by a solid gilt brass, half basket hilt. Based on the 1822 Pattern Infantry Officers Sword, and in place of the Royal cypher and crown there is a fouled anchor and crown along with the highly detailed lions head back piece and pommel.
In 1846, a blade designed by Wilkinson Sword was standardised for all ranks. The current lighter single edged straight blade was adopted in 1827.
