The Cold Steel U.S. Marines Officer's Saber, also known as the Mameluke Sword, is 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, Cold Steel has 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. While Cold Steel heartily approve of our Armed Forces wearing dress swords and sabers, They 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 Cold Steel decided to make theirs a truly battle worthy reproductions.
