French Heavy Cavalry Sword
This sword was carried by regiments such as the Grenadier à cheval de la Garde (Imperial Guard). The massive engraved brass hilt with mounted grenade and wire wrapped leather grip is elegantly crafted. The high carbonized steel 37 1/2 inch blade is well fulled like that of the originals. The scabbard is most remarkable. It is made of brass with a leather insert and has two brass.
