Dragoon sword, 1700

Dragoons were mounted infantry who used horses to move quickly around the battlefield. They were organised and equipped in such a way that they could fight on foot or on horseback with carbines and swords. The dragoon sword-blade is shaped like a flattened diamond. In the 1720s the design began to change to a single-edged, 'fullered' blade. The fuller, or groove, stiffened the blade.
