French infantry saber Briquet

This saber was widely used by the French infantry in „Napoleon times“ in almost all of Europe. The famous general has established with this sabre the tradition of sabrage, when the throats of champagne bottles were knocked off after a victorious battle in 1812. The French name Briquet stands for fire steel and was probably a jocular word created for this weapon.
