Unusual British c.1800's Military Cadet's short sword/dirk. Probably for a young naval officer. With decorative brass hilt and fishskin and twistwire grip. Plain blade with rounded tip. Complete with original steel and brass mounted scabbard. First example that I have ever seen. Blade length is 20.5 inches (24 inches overall).
