The Auxillia Limited Edition Roman Spatha The spatha or long sword was originally 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. The Auxilia blade is based on spathae found in many parts of Europe. A well know example is the Cologne (Koln) spatha. These can have lenticular or diamond shaped section. Some examples are dated to the 1st C AD. 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: Nathan Bell "This sword should be called the Auxilia. As the Empire expanded the Roman army especially the cavalry incorporated many barbarians into its auxilliary units (the Auxilia)." Specifications TBA

Customer Testimonials

I ordered a Zatoichi Samurai Sword and when it arrived i noticed the box had been damaged. After opening it, I found out that the sword had a 'ding' in it and was slightly bent. I called Swords of Honor and they immediately issued a call tag for UPS to come pick it up and sent me a new one (which arrived perfectly).
