    The "proper sword" given Sharpe by Capt. Murray is a the British Pattern 1796 Sword for Heavy Cavalry. It is a single-edged sword with a "hatchet" point similar to that of the Japanese katana. Also like the katana, the 1796 is meant to be a cutting sword, though this blade-heavy weapon is meant for much less elegant work than the well-balanced katana. As such, the 1796 is particularly unsuitable for delicate swordplay; nonetheless it found strong favor among British foot as well as horse troops especially during the Napoleonic Wars due its ability to simply break the blades of lighter infantry and cavalry swords - allowing users to smash their way through opponents. The hefty, sturdy 1796 was reported to cause such terrible injuries that many Napoleonic-era French officers protested its use by the British as a "terror weapon" unfit for civilized combat.
