How to Determine if a Military Sword is Authentic

Determining if a military sword is authentic requires knowledge and attention to detail. The United States government certifies each military sword produced. This certificate of authenticity accompanies each approved saber. Reputable sellers will know this fact, readily offer the documentation and price the item accordingly. If a sword's authenticity is questionable, look to the details of the sword.

Gift Giving for the Soldier

There are many ways in which you can reward your troops as an officer or reward hard work after a long and trying inspection on base. You can offer Marines a variety of gifts but one of the most inspiring is a display unit for their sword. If they have one sword or two swords to display you can congratulate them with unique cases and stands. The same type of gift can be given at retirement parties for those who will no longer need to hang on to their swords or for those who are cross training into another field or another branch of the military.
