Premium Army Saber & Scabbard
Design based off the historical Model 1850 Army Staff & Field Officer's Sword
Cast hand guard with "US" letters embedded
Eagle head pommel
Solid-brass casting, nickel-plated
Black ABS plastic grip with sharkskin imitation surface
3 silver-plated brass wires around the handle
Forged, curved stainless steel blade, 7/8 inch wide
Acid etched with US Army saber pattern
Individual serial number etched on blade spine
Carbon steel tube, nickelplated with 3 brass fittings
2 soldered carrying rings
Is there a reason why the premium M1902 only comes in lengths of 30 and 32? I'm of shorter stature and a 28" blade is more my size.

This historical saber is primarily a gift piece intended for display. The 30” and 32” blade sizes look the best on wall mounts. Should someone want to wear the saber for a special occasion and the blade length does not work, we can special order 28” and 34” sabers. The special order process to create the individual saber can take 5-6 months. Please contact our customer service team if interested in the special order process.

Your description above states that the blade is "forged, curved stainless steel," but the WKC website describes this sword as follows: "Forged carbon steel, hardened and tempered to a hardness of 48-55° HRC Rockwell ca., hand-polished. Each side bears a blood-groove. Elegantly curved." Which description is correct?
I see that you all are saying this saber is for special occasions, but is it authorized? Specifically is it authorized for a Commander of Troops in an official ceremony like a Change of Command?

The 1902 saber is the more traditional variant and is the same one used by The Old Guard in an official capacity. This premium design is intended for special or commemorative events where it is the only saber present, such as a retirement, or a time where it can be more distinctive, such as a wedding. It may not be the idea option in an formal function where other sabers are being worn or people are performing manual of arms, such as a change of command.
