I'm interested in short napoleonic infantry sabre "briquet". Do you know any manual for that?

I have a feeling that on the French side at least, there is very little in the way of manuals for military "armes blanches" before the 1830s (when you get the bayonet manuels or Brack, Aux Avants Postes). Yet there must have been some training-- done by regimental "maîtres d'armes" ? Purely oral ? So I don't think there is anything like Roworth or Marchant. Why ?
