This listing is for the sheath only - the French Napoleonic infantry sabre P47K is NOT included!!

The true to original copy of the sabre/sheath was manufactured for theatre use, collection or show purposes. Like the original the sword is 79 cm / 31.1" long (including the sheath).
Blade length: 61 cm / 24".
Weight: 1.4 kg / 3.0 lbs
The steel blade has a blunt edge, 1mm / 0.03" thick.

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).
