 French Infantry Officer Sabre

Item History and Description (IUS165) –

This French Infantry Officer’s Sabre 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 sabre. 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 sabres were also popular in the United
States where notable commanders Oliver Hazard Perry, Captain Samuel Chester Reid and
Privateer General Armstrong carried this sword.

Specifications:

Total length: 101,60 cm
Blade length: 82,80 cm
Weight with scabbard: 1.400 kg


This reproduction of the French Infantry Officer’s Sabre 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.
