Star Of David

Grunt.com Admin |

It was explained to me that the six-pointed star on the Marine NCO Sword is the Star of Damascus, not the Star of David.  Apparently, Damascus swords had a reputation of  very high quality.  Later, sword manufacturers simply
started placing this same star on their swords; thus the original meaning has been obscured over time.

SGT Wilke refers to the higher quality of the damascus steel historically utilized to make swords as well as other weapons. Semper Fi, D. Miller, Corporal, USMC (67-71)
