Product Description

Most Early versions of the Roman Gladius were wasp waisted with a long point that combined cutting power and stabbing ability in one handy weapon. Some of the later versions (Like our Generation2/Legacy Arms version) were made with a straighter blade but still with the long point.  Even later versions (like the Pompeii pattern) were not waisted and also had a shorter point but were just as effective - and easier to make. Both swords served side-by-side for many years and it was not uncommon to find 4th century Legionnaires carrying either models. The gladius is known as "the sword that conquered the world". High carbon blade, hard wood handle.  High polished steel spacer at the bottom of the handle for strength and durability.

NOTE: The blade is flat. That is not a fuller in the picture.

- Note -
...The blade is 3/16" high carbon spring steel with a full hefty tang. We tested it on several 2"x4" standing up and split them with no marring on the blade. We then tested it on a 2"x4" cross ways resting on each side on a solid rest and came straight down. It did not cut all the way through but it did cut deep and again did not mar the blade or edge. We then went to the ultimate test Steel-to-SteelSM. We did 9 good blows, it nicked the blade but did not break the blade not break the tang or handle in either of these test.
