Hilt of sword by Cullum zoom

Hilt of sword

This sword is of a type popular in the Royal Navy towards the end of the 18th century. The long, uniformity tapered blade seems to show a compromise between the fighting sword used for cutting and that used for thrusting and the finish of the weapon, together with its relative lightness of weight suggests that it might possibly have doubled as both a fighting and a dress sword though it would not have replaced the small sword for dress ashore. Cullum was making swords at Charing Cross between 1752 and 1796/7 but the sword has been provisionally dated by reference to a portrait in the N.M.M. of Admiral Kempenfelt and to another of Captain Bentinck as both officers have similar swords represented in their paintings. It may be assumed that the sword was worn by any officer without regard to rank. See also WPN1268.
