The Briquet Saber was a melee weapon in Napoleonic Wars. It is a
short, slightly curved sword with a golden handle, and was carried by
most infantry units, including flag-bearers, musicians, and engineers.
The real-life saber briquet was introduced around 1780, however,
soldiers found that in close quarters, bayonets or the stocks of their
muskets were better suited for combat, and the order was given to
abandon the saber briquet in 1807. Some regiments continued to carry
them until 1815, though.
Briquet, easy handing short sabre, as other white weapons of the
time, gets its origin in the French Revolution, and later the Napoleonic
troops of Infantry, Artillery and Grenadiers were provided with this
