briquets (sabers, <swords by form>, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Short-bladed, slightly curved infantry sabers carried by the soldiers and officers of Napoleon's Imperial Guard. "Briquet" refers to a metal blade flint striker for lighting fires, which resembled this infantry short sword. The term for the sword was made official in an instruction of June 1806 by Napoleon's ministry of war. The two-foot blades were mostly used for utilitarian purposes, but could also inflict serious injuries during battle.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Sabels met kort blad die gebruikt werden door de soldaten en officieren in Napoleons Keizerlijke garde. De naam komt voort uit de gelijkenis tussen het gebogen gevest van de sabel en de tondeldozen die toen in gebruik waren. De sabre-briquet werd vooral voor praktische doeleinden gebruikt, maar kon in de strijd ook serieuze verwondingen aanbrengen.
