French Napoleonic Briquet Infantry Cutlass with Scabbard
New Made Item: Following the French Revolution that started in 1789 came the Reign of Terror in which thousands of Frenchmen, aristocrats and common folk met terrible deaths under the blade of the Guillotine. The chaos lasted almost ten years and finally subsided with the coming of Napoleon Bonaparte who was to become the "Emperor" and soon after the scourge of Europe.
Napoleon's Armies took on the entire world almost bringing many Nations to their knees.
His genius for Military Tactics and the devotion of his magnificent troops almost made him Master of Europe but finally he was routed in 1815 at the Battle of Waterloo.
Most infantrymen carried this Napoleonic Infantry Cutlass, known as a Briquet Sword, as a second line of defense after their Charlesville Flintlock Musket. Our reproduction is made from tempered 23" curved unfullered steel blade marked on the back edge "M.fture Imp.du Klingenthal, Octobre 1813" and has a solid ribbed brass "D" guard hilt. Each comes in a beautiful brass mounted black leather scabbard complete with large belt frog. A clasic French sidearm from the Napoleonic Wars!
