We made a mould of an original sabre to be sure to obtain the best copy.
Then we copied exactly a 2 centuries old blade, and we added on it 2 mottos, same as on a blade found in Russia from Baron "Meda".

On one face you can read " Au Grand Napoléon 1er Empereur des Français et Roi d'Italie", on the other side was indicated name of his regiment followed by " Pour l'Honneur et la Patrie".
Merda arrested Robespierre and Couthon on night between 27th to 28th july 1794 (9 to 10 thermidor) An II.

Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur in 1804 then officer in 1807, he becomes baron Méda (it sounds better in french!).
He fights with his regiment, in battles of Eylau, Wagram, Smolensk.

He is deeply wounded during Moskova-Borodino battle on 5th septembre 1812, is promoted general de brigade and dies 3 days later.

Total length 112 cm, blade 98 cm. Total weight with scabbard 1787 g, without scabbard 997 g.
This type of sabre appeared in 1784 but was used during all Empire by all cavalry except hussars, because it was very appreciated and many officers adopted it .
Many types of blades were used. Garde des consuls used it, then imperial guard for dragoon officers for instance but also dragoon officers of line!.

Orders that will not respect this information can be cancelled.
We cannot know all foreign regulations, before you order any sabre or sword, please inform you about the regulation in your country. We won't accept any claim if you have problems with importation, and we will keep payment of shipping in any case because we pay it as anybody.[/g]

Way to calculate shipping cost to countries out of EEC is now proportional of weight, but also of volume.
So shipping cost is, most of the time, much more higher than 45 € automatically added at the end of your order.
You must now ask us, to know the real shipping cost that you have to pay, before you pay.
