Description

The Decurio Limited Edition Roman Spatha The spatha or long sword was otiginally the weapon of the Roman cavalry units. Longer than the infantry gladius it gave the reach and cutting power needed from horseback. In the 3rd and 4th centuries the spatha gradually replaced the gladius as the infantry sword probably due to the large numbers of Celtic/Germanic recruits that then populated the legions in the late Empire. The spatha is also credited with being the inspiration for the development of the Migration era sword styles -- in fact in many bog finds it is difficult to determine which swords are late Roman spathae and which are native Germanic swords. In our spatha offerings we are attempting to present several different blade and hilt styles that will span the time from the earliest spathae into the early Migration era. The guard and pommel are hand-crafted of walnut the grip turned from holly and the inset guard plate and pommel nut are of bronze. A Limited Edition Hand Crafted Collectible Sword This sword is offered in a limited edition of only 500 collectible swords worldwide. Name That Sword Contest Winner: Eric Meulemans "The deep fullers and obvious extra attentiveness and care in the crafting of this blade give it a commanding presence and so earning the name of Decurio - a cavalry officer and commander of ten men - to which such a weapon would surely be a fine companion."
