Defining Military Sabre

Postby Sabs » 14 May 2018 13:00

The term "military sabre" gets thrown around a lot in HEMA discussion, yet even as a sabreur myself, I've never been 100% what is intended by this term, nor do I believe all those who use it are either.

So my question to all you self-professed "military sabreurs", what exactly is "military sabre"? Is it a weapon, a system, or a combination of the two? What exactly is "military" in comparison to, duelling sabre? What even is duelling sabre for that matter?

I will clarify that I do not intend to be antagonistic, so my apologies if I come across as such.
