The French Infantry Officer’s Saber was of the type carried by Napoleon’s light infantry; The Voltigeurs, Carabinier, and Chasseurs. They would have likely crossed blades with the British 1803 saber. The sword is gently curved to deliver a deadly slash, but not so much as to deter from its ability to thrust with the point.
These French sabers were also popular in the United States where notable commanders Oliver Hazard Perry, Captain Samuel Chester Reid and Privateer General Armstrong carried this sword.
This reproduction of the French Infantry Officer’s Saber is made with a blade of unsharpened, tempered high carbon steel.
The hilt is of brass, with a wooden grip finished in black. It comes with a leather scabbard with brass accents.
A leather washer at the base of the blade protects the crossguard from colliding into the brass throat of the scabbard.
