too fancy? take a look at Ottoman swords during that time period and see for yourself,or if not you can take a look at their Muskets and Pistols.

Pretty! Where these really used in combat? They seem like something I'd hang up on my wall.

Are you the kind of person that has a use for any kind of sabre?

They were definitely used in combat, though. The extreme curve was very useful for light infantry and rifle officers who needed to crouch a lot (where a straight sword would be very inconvenient). Although quite highly decorated, they were sturdy and well balanced weapons.

Lower ranking officers often bought theirs with a simpler, more combat ready blade, though.

Yeah I like to collect swords but I'm not an avid collector, just anything I can find in flea markets really. Was just curious 'cause I learned recently that stylized swords like this one are usually ceremonial stuff.

Description

A British 1803-pattern light infantry, rifle and grenadier officer's sabre. With an elaborate handle and blued-and-gilted blade, this was quite the impressive weapon.
