In the third century BC, Rome fought against the Iberian Celts and their iron weapons, gaining so much respect for the ir short swords that they adopted the design as their own. The sword that eventually conquered most of the then-known world evolved from the Gladius Hispanicus - Spanish sword. Originally a stabbing weapon, the Gladius quickly became a cut-and-thrust sword, with a long point and a slightly "waisted" blade - arguably the most elegant of Roman sword types. Our Gladius is based on the "waisted" pattern, its light blade and typical wooden guard and pommel making for a very quick sword. The segmented bone grip and beautifully detailed Brown scabbard with battle scenes in bas-relief complete a sword that any legionary would have been proud to own.
