This ‘’Munitions Grade” item is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades, basically rendering them as 2nds quality. These items are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting and functional pieces will still be functional. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

Issued to Napoleons elite Imperial Guard troops, this saber was introduced in 1803 to the ‘’enfants cheris’’ the Chasseur a Cheval de la Garde - the ‘’cherished children’’ of Napoleon, the Horse Chasseurs of the Imperial Guard. This unit, second only to the Horse Grenadiers of the Imperial Guard, was Napoleon’s personal guard that accompanied him through his campaigns, establishing a top-notch reputation for their time fighting with him until the bitter end of Waterloo. This saber would be widespread in units of the Imperial Guard of the Grand Armée.

This reproduction of the Imperial Guard Light Cavalry Trooper’s Saber has a unsharpened, tempered blade of high carbon steel. It bears the signature of Klingenthal, the French state-run sword manufactory on its spine. It reads; "Mfture Nale de Klingenthal Coulaux frères Entreps". The reverse of the blade bears inspection stamps, the LW for Director Levavsseur and the M for Controleur Jean-Jacques Mouton. The hilt is of brass and the grip is ribbed black leather inlaid with brass wire.The wood-core scabbard is covered with black leather overlaid with extensive brass fittings and two steel suspension rings. A leather washer at the base of the blade protects the crossguard from colliding into the metal throat of the scabbard
