The sheath is carved with the Government’s Coat of Arms which was designed by Sultan Abu Bakar. On the sword, is carved the symbol of the Order of Family and the Order of the Crown. The tip of the sword is made out of steel and inscribed with the words “Alwathik Billah Al Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Sultan Abu Bakar Johor 1313″ on the obverse and “His Highness Sultan Ibrahim Sultan of Johor (1895)” on the reverse.
