The horse grenadier were first equipped with a saber on which "Grenadiers de la Gendarmerie" was written. It was soon changed for a saber made by Boutet, with a straight blade. The second squadron was then equipped with the light cavalry an IV saber. A new hilt version was soon invented by Boutet, which was put on a Montmorency blade in 1802. The scabbard was finally improved in 1810, and this is the replica we sell.
