Description

Briquet Saber 

 

The Briquet Saber is a melee weapon in Napoleonic Wars. It is a short, slightly curved sword with a golden handle, and is carried by most infantry units, including flag-bearers, musicians, and engineers.

The real-life saber briquet was introduced around 1780, however, soldiers found that in close quarters, bayonets or the stocks of their muskets were better suited for combat, and the order was given to abandon the saber briquet in 1807. Some regiments continued to carry them until 1815, though.

“Briquet”, easy handing short sabre, as other white weapons of the time, gets its origin in the French Revolution, and later the Napoleonic troops of Infantry, Artillery and Grenadiers were provided with this weapon.

Excellent Replica of Briquet Saber.
