Description
CS88MNS: U.S. Marine NCO Saber
Cold Steel

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 Sheath
Leather Sheath
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.
1055 Carbon Steel
1055 Carbon Steel
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.

Pros: Materials, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Overall Quality, Usable
Cons: None
What a sword!!
I bought this sword for my former Marine brother who never got issued his whilst in the corps. The fit and finish were absolutely flawless and the overall aesthetics far surpassed that of any decorative wall hanger. Awesome job Cold Steel! I'll definately be buying that 1917 navy cutlass I want so bad now and I'll be buying it from knife enter.com because they've been the lowest price I've seen anywhere on the Internet.

Pros: None
Cons: Overall Quality, Finish, Blade Material, Materials
Horrible
This was the worst product I've EVER purchased online. It looks like a blind person made it. The blade is bent to one side so obviously it didn't pass the "British Proof Test" and the blade has a "chunk" missing out of it. I do not recommend this to anyone
