I'm looking for information of the antique sword that the "Hanwei Scottish Court Sword" is based upon.

It supposedly belonged to an officer in Charles Edward Stuart's army at Culloden.

Does anyone know who the officer was and/or have any photos or measurements of the original weapon?


Thanks to all!

From Culloden: The Swords and the Sorrows, published by the National Trust for Scotland, page #49. Item #1:55, Silver-hilted small-sword (claidheamh cuil).
To summarize the script, the hilt is English and the blade probably German. Overall length is 37 5/8 inch. It is possibly the dress sword of Alexander Irvine of Drum, the 17th Laird. Irvine was present at Culloden, and was eventually tried but was not convicted, and lived at Drum the rest of his life.

Sorry, I have no pics and no further measurements.
