Trainer for Seidler's Sabre
Alongside the British light cavalry sword, the Model 1811 was used by
Prussian hussars, dragoons, uhlans, horse artillery and by the militia
cavalry Landwehr who had been raised in 1813 to fight against the
French. The only type of Prussian cavalry not to make use of the Model
1811, or its British counterpart, were the kuirassiers, who retained
their straight-bladed and brass-hilted pallasch.
