The regulations of the 1st Vendémiaire (Sept. 24, 1803) spelled out the guidelines for the AN XII General Officer’s swords to be used by the command staff of the Napoleonic Grande Armée. In spite of the regulations, these high ranking officers would invariably use their wealth and influence to endow themselves with lavishly adorned swords with added and excess decoration that would contort the regulations into meaninglessness.
This replica is of a sword that would likely have been worn at the hip of a division or brigade general. It has an unsharpened blade of high carbon steel. The hilt is of brass adorned with the symbols of status and Empire. The grip is of black-finished wood, etched with cross-hatching for an improved grip. The scabbard is of darkened steel with brass fittings.
