When Britain standardized the swords to be carried by regimental officers, it also standardized a simpler, cheaper version of the sword that was to be worn by the sergeants and their accompanying drum and fife. Omitting the silver detailing and blade engraving, these all-brass hilted swords were in the form required and at a price befitting the wages of the men carrying them.
The recreation of the British 1796 Sergeant’s sword has a plain blade of unsharpened, tempered, high carbon steel. The hilt is entirely of brass. The scabbard is of leather with brass accents. The sword is the longer version used by the sergeants instead of the shorter blade used by the musicians, though the overall sword design and construction were inherently the same.
