Primarily a ‘last ditch’ defensive measure for senior staff NCOs and Officers manning cannon batteries in combat. When the enemy breaches defensive barriers and the guns are useless, these short swords were used to ‘cleave’ the enemy. A design inspired by the French Napoleonic short sword. Overall length 25”. Hefty brass handle and steel blade. Comes with leather scabbard with brass throat & tip.
