The Meridian Order of the Blade is an armigerous polling order (meaning it automatically grants an Award of Arms) given by the Crown of the Meridies in recognition of excellence in: Skill, Instruction, Leadership, and Service to the sport of Fencing, the Rapier Community, and the Kingdom as a whole.

Companions of the order may wear a garter or strap about their left upper arm (black with white edging bearing the badge of the order) and/or any other article bearing the badge of the order (a field sable, a rapier palewise or, beneath 3 mullets argent) and are entitled to place the initials, M.O.B. after their name.
