    ~ Extremely Rare French Napoleonic 1807-1808 Sword For Polish Cavalry ~


    Here we have something incredibly rare and interesting, a sword carried by the Polish troopers in Napoleons Cavalry which were always in small numbers but constantly utilised in their short period of service.

    The regiments were raised after 1807 and were divided into light cavalry and lancers with both carrying this sword as standard.

    The sword differs from the standard French by having a blackened steel guard and a smooth contoured wooden grip rather than a ribbed horn one.

    These swords are extremely rare, there were a limited number of Polish troops in Napoleons forces and they only served from 1807 to the 100 days in 1815 but all the Polish troops saw heavy action in this period, being used consistently as shock troopers and also being responsible for personally saving the life of Napoleon Bonaparte at least three times.

    ~ Dimenions ~

    The blade is 32 inches long.

    The sword is 37 inches long.

    The sword weighs 810g.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in surprisingly good condition for its age with some pitting towards the tip and some cracks to the grip and pommel cap.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £25 or it can be inspected in our shop.
