Roman Pugio Dagger - 2nd Century


The distinct shape of the Roman Pugio dagger blade was excellent for close quarters fighting and was used throughout the legions. Although swords and knives were generally not worn by Roman civilians within the boundaries of the "Pax Romana", barbarians and bandits were certainly to be found in the outlands, and a merchant or trader best go armed. No doubt many an old legionnaire must have found it easier to keep his balance with the familiar weight on his hip as he worked his farm in new won territory. Our Roman Pugio Dagger is based on finds in the British Museum collection and is one of the best available to buy in the UK.  The wood hilt is paired with a fully tempered high carbon steel blade. Comes complete with a wood scabbard covered in leather with brass parts.
