The Grenadier regiments of Emperor Napoleon were equipped with these short sabers. They were not regarded as effective weapons, but the elite troops liked them - probably as a status symbol akin to the sabers worn by the elite cavalry. These sabers found a secondary function as a camp tool for splitting firewood and today this short saber is a favorite blade for popping Champagne corks!

Made in India by Universal Swords, this reproduction Briquet saber is made from tempered high carbon steel with an all-brass hilt. The scabbard is of black leather with brass fittings.
