This US Marine sergeant dress saber was produced according to US government specifications for the equipment of officers in the US Marine Corps. The dress saber features an especially decorative blade, which is made of stainless steel as per the official specifications. On both sides, it is etched with an arabesque pattern, the inscription "United States Marines," and the six-pointed star used by the Persian sword makers in Damascus.
The dress saber's blade is curved and from the fuller to the point, it is sharpened on both sides. The golden, opulently decorated hand guard and pommel frame the grip, which is covered in black leather and wrapped with golden wire. A chape and throat made of brass decorate the leather scabbard, which also features a practical hook for attaching it to a dress uniform. This sword also comes with a cloth bag for transport and storage.
