Description

The Roman Army's approach to warfare was direct and pragmatic. It chose the Gladius as its principal sidearm because it was practical and efficient and excelled in any close combat situation. The early Gladius (A)(our version is the Maintz pattern) was wasp waisted with a long point that combined cutting power and stabbing ability in one handy weapon. Real faux ivory and ornate brass applique on the scabbard. 2 1/4"wide. This is the sword that conquered most of the known world. Circa 100. High carbon steel. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Originals were excavated from the ruins of Pompeii. You can see examples in H. Russell Robinson's"What The Soldiers Wore On Hadrian s Wall."

If you choose to add the sharpening service please be aware that there is a delay in shipping usually no more than a week. There will be no return on this or any other sharpened items unless there is a manufacturing defect.

The Hobby Stone arrived perfectly yesterday and I've already got my castle mold created and can't wait to detail it. The cast feels very strong and it's bubble free.
