The first Royal Navy pattern sword was created in 1805, its elegant but impractical design being superseded by a solid-hilt design developed in 1827. In 1846, a blade was standardised for all Royal Navy Officers. The current light, single-edged straight blade was adopted in 1929. Carried by RN Commissioned Officers, this sword featured a gold-plated brass hilt, white fish-skin grip and a brass pommel in the form of a lion.
