Napoleonic French Infantry Officer's Sabre.  $350 - repro
This sword was carried by officers serving in the Grenadier, Voltigeur, Carabinier and Chasseur companies of Napoleon's infantry. While they varied somewhat in pattern, this particular example is one of the more elegant. Note the properly engraved blade with laurels and trophies, the ebony-like grip, and the finely caste pommel and D-guard.  Even the scabbard shows attention to detail with tooling marks on the leather, and engraved lines on the brass mountings

Napoleonic Pattern 1796 Light Cavalry Sabre. (butcher blade) $350 repro
 

This is a beautiful sword with its wide sweeping blade and stirrup grip.  It was indeed an extremely effective cutting sabre, so much so that the Prussians adopted it near the end of the Napoleonic wars.  It also found favor with the United States. The US dragoon pattern for the War of 1812 was identical to this sword except the scabbard was blackened. This said it is most famous for its use by Britain's light dragoons and hussars in the Peninsular war and the Battle of Waterloo.  

The steel hilt of the reproduction is very well executed with smooth junctions.  The black leather grip has very well defined ribbing making it a superior copy.   The smart-looking 33 inch blade is made of high carbon "spring" steel.  This sword comes with a well-constructed steel scabbard with two suspension rings.

wood & faux ivory handle, wood scabbard covered with leather & brass embossed panels.
I gave it a better worn look and feel by adding brass wire and color to the handle, antiqued the scabbard and put a satin finish on the blade. Never been nicked - a show piece.
