Details

  • Model: IW0101002

Description

Most Early versions of the Roman Gladius were wasp waisted with a long point that combined cutting power and stabbing ability in one handy weapon. Early Roman Swords from the first century b.c. display a 'waisting' of the blade to improve balance and a long . narrow point. Even later versions (like the Pompeii pattern) were not waisted and also had a shorter point but were just as effective - and easier to make. Both swords served side-by-side for many years and it was not uncommon to find 4th century Legionnaires carrying either models. The gladius is known as "the sword that conquered the world". It features a full tang construction . high carbon blade . hard wood handle. High polished steel spacer at the bottom of the handle for strength and durability. A leather scabbard is included.

Blade length: 21"
Handle/Hilt length: 8-1/4"
Overall: 29-1/4"
Balance Point: 2-1/2" Below Hilt
Weight: 2 lbs. 5 oz.

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.
