The gladius was the favored weapon of the Roman legion, and in trained hands, this short blade became one of the most effective in history. Most Roman Gladius Swords were of rather short length, typically measuring between 18 and 30 inches long. Gladius were typically considered to be stabbing weapons, thanks to their vicious point and wide blade, although their manner of construction made them quite effective at cutting and slashing, too. Our Roman Officer Gladius is made in the Pompeii style rather than the later, longer Mainz style. Just handling our Gladius will make you begin to feel like a Roman legionary.
Our Gladius is modeled after authentic roman gladius swords and is approximatley 30" long. This Officer sword features parallel edges and the shorter length facilitating close-quarters combat, allowing a Roman legionary to quickly draw, stab, slash, and defend in smooth, easy motions. Our sword is not the typical soldier weapon. Our sword is more detailed to the Roman officer featuring some pomp and decorative adornments.
Our Gladius sword features a 440J stainless steel 22" blade with a detailed knotwork design etched on the blade. The authentically designed handle offers a cast metal guard and pommel and faux wood grip. The metal scabbard offers a wood grain finish, hanging chain, and highly detailed cast metal furnishings which makes this blade the ideal costume piece for any typical Roman looks, as well as a choice collectors piece for anyone with Roman interests and a collection of impressive historical arms.
Key Features:
Includes Wood-Finished Scabbard
Etched, Polished Stainless Steel Blade
An authentic Roman weapon design
