Sabers have been favored the world over, for hundreds of years, as military swords, and this French Grenadier Infantry Sword reaches back into the 1700s, serving well as a symbol of office and rank, as well as a battlefield companion and side-arm. Similar in overall style to the classic officers saber, this sword is a bit smaller, serving more as a side-arm, rather than a primary weapon. The sword possesses a saber-like design that features a curved, single-edged blade with a fuller down its spine. The grip is cast entirely in brass metal, featuring D-guard for defense of the hand, as well as shaping and ridging to ensure that the hand fits comfortably on the grip. Included with the sword is a matched scabbard, made from wood and wrapped in leather, as well as fitted with brass-metal adornments on the chape and throat. Worn at the hip, this French Grenadier Infantry Sword is a handy little hanger, similar to the cutlasses of old, one that served not only as a soldiers badge of office, but also as a side-arm and weapon, for when the enemies might have overrun his position.
