Air Force Academy Saber

The United States Air Force Academy is in my city, so it's a big part of our town's culture. For this week's My World post, here are some photos of the saber that graduates are entitled to get. It might be technically defined as a sword, but by tradition it's called a saber.
Before anyone asks, I did not have the privilege of attending the Air Force Academy. For lots more photos from around the world, visit the My World Tuesday meme.

  1. Nice shots of the saber. The intricate designs on the handle are beautiful and I love the bright blue background. I have been to the Air Force Academy in CO and posted photos last year. It is an impressive place to visit.

  13. How long is the saber? I was watching "Everyone loves Raymond," they went for an reenactment. I suppose that was a saber they had.
