During french revolution, all decorations are suppressed, but very soon it seems necessary to reward most deserving soldiers, and they receive a special sabre briquet (in anfantry)as gift.

This type of sabre is attributed to infantry of new created imperial guard , and as it is an elite unit, Manufacture de Versailles, directed by Nicolas Noel Boutet has to produce it for grenadier à pied and chasseur à pied. Blades were usually made by Klingenthal.
