Marlow White's swords and sabers have ceremonial blades. As such, they are built to strict military regulations to be used in drills, ceremonies, and displays. These blades are of the highest quality but are not sharpened for use as a weapon.
Marine Officer Sword Grip Fit
Mameluke Grip Fit Detail: We consider the fit of the plastic grip to the metal pieces of the hilt to be a very important quality feature of the Mameluke; however, this feature is a very difficult one to photograph. WKC's plastic grip fits nearly flush to the metal pieces. Country 1's plastic grip is such that a vertical "ridge" about 2/32 inches high forms at the metal portion of the hilt. See the Grip and Acorn sections for more comparison at different angles.
