The Eagle Headed Talabot is an artillerymanís sword with a blade forged from EN9 high carbon steel. The hilt is brass and is steel-pinned to the thick tang to give the sword a very durable construction. The scabbard is of thick leather with a protective brass locket and chape.

This artillerymanís sword was heavily inspired by the Neoclassicism popular in the late 18th and much of the 19th century. Much of the art of the time hearkened back to classical Rome and Greece and burgeoning Empires and Nation-states were quick to capitalize on this revival to portray themselves as a rebirth of the Roman Republic. Much of this can be seen in the Empire of Napoleon and the 19th century United States. This Classical revival found its way into the military arms of the day.

Artillery swords such as this Talabot were a 19th century re-imagination of the Roman Gladius. Though such swords had little practical use in a battlefield of cannon, musket and bayonet, they served primarily to dignify the army that bore them into battle with the inherited mantle of the idealized Roman Republic. This example with a striking eagle-headed pommel is a particular example that very heavily lends its stylings to a Romanticized 19th century vision of Rome.
