The Gladius, one of history’s most iconic swords was a mainstay of the Roman Legionnaire. A light weight, quick, close combat sword. Combined with the large scutum shield, and Roman tactics, these swords were at the peak of armed combat technology. Aiding in carving out Rome’s vast Empire.
This sword in Mainz profile is hand crafted from spring steel. Featuring a fully sharpened, functional ridged blade. The hilt is made from a combination of rosewood and brass components. Complemented with a wooden bound scabbard, fitted with hanging eyes. A fantastic traditional sword.
I've wanted to purchase a Good replica of a Roman Mainz Gladius for a while now, and I'm Very Pleased with this one. Fantastic finish, detail and feel. Would recommend having this Gladius in Your collection.
