Best Answer

The best estimate is about 40,000 between 1789 and 1799. It sounds like a lot but it is really only eleven a day for 10 years. That could hardly put in the need for a new blade replacement.
Estimates vary widely as to how many were killed, with numbers ranging from 20,000 to 40,000; in many cases, records were not kept, or if they were, they are considered likely to be inaccurate.

Precision :

the only precise record is the number of people beheaded from 1882 to 1981 (suppression of the Death penalty in France).

The records of French Revolution on Capital Punishment are inaccurate, sometimes non existent and often grossly exagerated. It is best in that case to simply state that "best estimates indicate that several thousand died at the guillotine".

Some sources say 35,000. Others I have seen estimate closer to 40,000. There might be higher or lower figures, as well.
