  • Model: WS0101007


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 later version (we offer you the Pompeii) were not waisted and had a shorter point but were just as effective and easier to make. Turned ash and maple handle. 2"wide. This is the sword that conquered most of the known world. Circa 100. High carbon steel. Overall-28". Blade-19 1/2". Wt.-2 lbs. 6 oz. Originals were excavated from the ruins of Pompeii. You can see examples in H. Russell Robinson's book"What The Soldiers Wore On Hadrian s Wall."500598

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.
