Straight-bladed dirk, thought to have belonged to Commander Thomas Wells (circa 1775-1825). The hilt of the dirk consists of a gilt guard, made in the shape of a flat ellipse, with an engraved strip 10 mm wide surrounding it. The dirk originally had a gilt lion's-head pommel, which was screwed to the end of the grip, and is now missing.
