Expertly fusing tradition and innovation, the officially licensed USMC "Blackout" Combat Sword is an undeniably modern take on an iconic, time-tested USMC sword design. Its potent 19 3/4" AUS-6 stainless steel tanto blade features the classic nonreflective black coating, enlarged blood groove, partial serrations and prominent "USMC" stamp that old-school Marine combat sword fans know and love.
Beyond the blade, the Blackout Sword's handle is encircled by five green bands. Retooled to satisfy the unique tactical demands and survival challenges of the modern era, the Blackout Sword's advanced injection molded handle is extraordinarily durable and boasts a textured rubberized grip that virtually eliminates slippage, even in wet environments and other harsh conditions. A "USMC" inset is positioned in the handle's center, reminding all who see it that the Blackout Combat Sword is engineered to be Marine tough. Set atop the pommel is a convenient steel glass.
