We were not satisfied of existing copies.
So we bought an original sabre, and we made moulds from it, and we have choosen to put a blade that really existed and was attributed to General Merda (!).

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 général de brigade and dies 3 days later.

Total length 110 cm, blade 94 cm. Total weight with scabbard 1790 g, without scabbard 1030 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!.

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.
