Union Foot Officer Swords are 36 inches in all. These sabers are inspired by real military swords that were popular during the American Civil War. This modern version features a straight 30 inch steel blade that has an unsharpened edge. The blade features ornate historical etchings and is engraved with the letters US. The brass colored guard features the letters US between the branches. These swords have a brass colored pommel and a dark leather covered grip with a traditional wire wrap. The blued finish scabbard has contrasting shiny brass colored accents.
