Cold Steel U.S. Marine NCO Saber 32" Carbon Steel Blade - 88MNS
CS88MNS: U.S. Marine NCO Saber
While we heartily approve of our Armed Forces wearing dress swords and sabers, we thought it was a shame that only unsharpened, poorly tempered wall hangers made of weak stainless steel are all that's available.
That's why we decided to make our own truly battle worthy reproductions. They're faithful in every detail to government specifications; they offer highly polished blades, appropriate etching and quality hilts and scabbards.
The only real changes we have made are to drastically improve their performance as weapons by forging them from 1050 Carbon Steel and properly heat treating them to a tough spring temper before sharpening.
In the case of the Marine Corps Officer's Saber, we have changed the hilt to solid mirror polished brass (not easily worn gold plate) and improved the attachment of the tang to the hilt so it could better withstand the rigors of sword to sword combat.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
An extremely tough steel with high carbon content and a hardness between 60-64RC, 1055 is best suited for high-impact and high-stress applications.
