The French F1 saber was created in the 20th century for military parades and ceremonies, and is heavily based on the AN IX sword of Napoleon’s day. Its similarity has fooled many, but the main difference in design is that the blade is less curved than the original and slightly shorter.
Inscribed onto its spine is the script ‘’Sabre D’Officier M. F1’’ The hilt is of brass. Unlike the original AN IX, the F1 had a grip crafted from a glossy, black, plastic-like polymer. This is replicated here on this recreation. The scabbard is of steel with brass accents and hanging rings.
