This sword has a sharpened, darkened 1075 high carbon steel blade with an extra-wide tang. Includes a leather scabbard with brass throat and chape. Overall 27 inches.

This short saber was introduced in 1767, preceding the French Revolution, as a replacement for heavier and cumbersome swords like the fusilier’s ēpēe. It was instantly derided for its modest dimensions and nicknamed “Briquet” (”fire lighter”) and the name stuck and became official in 1806.

Excelling as a close-quarters and melee weapon, the slightly upswept blade could be used for slashing, but because of its length and thickness it was also an excellent stabbing weapon. Napoleon’s infantry units, artillery, grenadiers, NCO’s and corporals traipsed much of Europe with this shiny cohort at their sides. This sword wasn’t always involved with grisly work, it was also used as a field tool. And after a victory, it was perfect for opening Champagne bottles! Distally tapered, it comes from the factory sharpened and includes leather scabbard with brass throat and chape.
