Answer by: Hannah Aaron (Admin) on Jul 13, 2017 11:43:00 AMWhy are there different lengths of NCO sabers? I am ordering one for a retiring NCO, how do I know the length to purchase?Question by: Stan Warrick on Mar 17, 2017 6:18:00 PMThe sizes are based off arm length. If you order too short, on a tall person the blade looks like a butter knife. If you order too long, the blade is likely to pop your cap off. It is ideal to be measured in person, as the blade lengths can vary due to the arm length of the individual. However, if you are unable to make it into the shop to be sized for a sword, then it is best to size based off height. Below is a list we use for "general sizing".
5'6"-5'7"= 28", 5'8"-5'9"= 29", 5'10"-5'11" = 30", 6'-6'1"= 31", 6'2"-6'3"=32", 6'4"-6'5"= 33", 6'6" & over= 34"Answer by: Hannah Aaron (Admin) on Mar 21, 2017 6:37:00 PMQuestion by: Zach Baugher on Sep 24, 2018 7:00:00 PMThe Army saber has the traditional etch design dating back to 1902. The Warrant Officer saber is a commemorative piece celebrating the Warrant Officer Corps' 100th anniversary. Its etch design includes the words "Army Warrant Officer Corps Centennial 1918-2018". In addition, it contains aspects of the Warrant Officer Corps including branch insignia and the Rising Eagle crest.

With Many Thanks , E,M.Question by: edmund monell on Oct 29, 2018 9:41:00 PMNo answers yet. Be the first to answer the question!Question by: Chris on May 3, 2019 12:28:00 AMMarlow White only retails certified military sword or saber which are a decoration to be used for ceremonial purposes.
All of our swords and saber are hand crafted in Germany by WKC and meet all military certifications. US military swords or saber are not to be used as a weapon. Therefore we do not sharpen them.
Also, it would not be our recommendation to have one of our swords or saber sharpened locally. This would cause damage and jeopardize the integrity of the sword.

The Old Guard typically wears the full-size medals. Wearing full-size medals on your ASU is as formal as you can get when wearing the service uniform.
We suggest ribbons be worn with the ceremonial belt if you are in a group formation. As both the miniature and the full-size medals are costly.Answer by: Hannah Aaron (Admin) on Jan 16, 2017 3:43:00 PMAre the number of characters on the officer sword limited to 19 characters?
