Be the first to review this product

This sword ("gladius" in Latin) found in Mainz, Germany and has a leaf-shaped, double-edged blade. It was as effective for cuts as it was for thrusts, which means it was the perfect sword for close combat. The light, faux ivory grip is characteristic of this type of gladius and the guard prevents your hand from slipping onto the blade after a strong thrust. The ample, ball-shaped pommel keeps your hand on the grip after strong cuts. A scabbard with ornamental brass applications comes with this Mainz type gladius.

Product Description

Details

The short sword was the weapon the Romans used to conquer the world of their day. There was no standard short sword, and their modern names reflect the shape of their blades and the location where they were found.

This sword ("gladius" in Latin) found in Mainz, Germany and has a leaf-shaped, double-edged blade. It was as effective for cuts as it was for thrusts, which means it was the perfect sword for close combat. The light, faux ivory grip is characteristic of this type of gladius and the guard prevents your hand from slipping onto the blade after a strong thrust. The ample, ball-shaped pommel keeps your hand on the grip after strong cuts. A scabbard with ornamental brass applications comes with this Mainz type gladius.
