Army Officer Gold-Blue Saber & Scabbard
The Army Officer Gold-Blue Presentation Saber is an absolutely beautiful piece. WKC master craftsmen start with the US Army Officer Saber, and using a special heating/cooling method, the steel blade is turned to a deep blue (the color won't be a solid blue because it's not painted on but will not have as much variation as wood grain). During the etching process the entire saber (minus the etch) is gold-plated with 24K gold .
To give a general idea of the time it takes to create such a masterpiece: a WKC Schwertfeger can process 20 Army Officer Saber blades in the time it takes to create 1 gold-blue saber blade.
Note: Due to the soft nature of gold you must consider this saber a display item only! If you carry and wear it, remove it from the scabbard, and replace it into the scabbard repeatedly, you will quickly damage the gold plating by rubbing it off between the nickel plated steel of the scabbard and the blued steel of the blade.
