This model was the prototype for identical Prussian sabres; several other countries copied it too - partly from war of liberation booty.
Napoleon was said to have opened a bottle of champagne with his infantry sabre after having won a battle in 1812. This "art" was afterwards celebrated in aristocratic circles as "sabrage".
Today the old tradition finds many new followers.
We offer a shorter version of this sabre as champagne sabrage sabre which is handier (our item No. P47K).
