The Pattern 1796 Light Cavalry Sabre is a sword that was used primarily by British Light Dragoons and hussars, and King's German Legion light cavalry during the Napoleonic Wars. It was adopted by the Prussians (as the 1811 pattern or "Bl├╝cher sabre") and used by Portuguese and Spanish cavalry.

But for a home defense sword, I would recommend a Roman Gladius,
Short enough to be used in tight hallways.
- Roman Gladius by Cold Steel. They were selling these things for around $20, years ago. Needed a proper sharpening, but it was good to go for pocket change.

For personal experience, I challenged some burglars who let themselves in my house through the back door. I was using an FN49 bayonet. Attached to the end of an Egyptian model FN49 in 8mm Mauser, loaded and chambered. The burglars were some stupid people looking for a stupid person I was sharing rent with. They left without further incident.

- Belgian FN 49, Egyptian contract, 7.92x57mmmm semi-auto rifle, 23-inch barrel and bayonet.
Nice, but heavy and it tore the rims on the brass she ejected.

Although, for bayonets, I like the long British models.

No pipe wrench, though.
I knew people who got in trouble with the cops because they kept clubs or knives in their cars, but one kept an old and heavy pipe wrench for a cudgel under the seat and the cops (routinely searching young men's cars) couldn't really object.
- An assortment of pipe wrenches, aka Stillson wrenches, designed by Daniel C. Stillson in 1869.

Some jerk is coming at you with a knife? Brain him with a hundred year-old pipe wrench.

My old man used to carry a "lead mallet" because he was in the roofing trade.

In fact it was a chunk of bannister for similar reasons.

I've always been curious about the difference in cerebral trauma between a deadblow hammer and a regular hammer. If the total mass of the hammer heads were the same, swung at the same speed, would a deadblow be more dangerous or less dangerous than a regular hammer?
>> No. 109747 ID: e13ce4
>>109616
If I had to guess, I'd think if there was a difference it would be negligible.

Impact area also plays a factor, so equal mass and velocity but spread out over different areas would make a difference in effectiveness.

Remember The Club anti-theft steering wheel lock from the 1980s?
Here's one touted to double as a weapon:
"The car lock make of Hardened steel, Weighing 3.1 pounds. When you are in danger, is a good self-defense weapons."
One end has a spike for breaking car windows in an emergency.
