An IX History
 
After the revolution there were numerous models
specific to each troop. This variety led to many disadvantages in the production, supply and maintenance and repair. Division general Comte Jean Jacques Basilien GASSENDI, (* 18.12.1748 - + 12.12.1828) streamlined the design and created a new plan of weapons, starting in the year IX (1800) with the model An IX and subsequent successive improvements (year XI, year XIII ...).
Quickly showed the susceptibility to breakage of the model l'An IX. As a result, not only the vessel was strengthened slightly, but especially the vagina. The latter proved to be easily deformable, so could catch the saber in his vagina in case of a blow. The An XI model solves these problems at the expense of weight, making the saber heavier. The weight increases from about 1650 gr. (An IX) to about 2997 gr. (An XI and An XIII), ie about 81.6%!. The material thickness of a An IX was 0.95 mm compared to an An XI 2.4 mm!
Before 1802, only the name of the manufactory Klingenthal stands on it. Until 1805, before Klingenthal "Nationale", until 1814 then "Imperiale" and after 1814 "Royale". From 1807 also the date of manufacture is on the blade.
The blades were made in Klingenthal and partly mounted in Versailles (hammered in the main bar). Most of the sabers AN IX that still exist today are in sheaths of AN XI. An AN IX is extremely rare

Hi

It's a very cool sabre.
The grip is typical from the Consulate period (after the revolution).
I'll post later an amazing website about these swords...
