Overview


This is the sword that conquered most of the known world. Made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish, extra wide tang by Windlass Steelcrafts.

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.

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''. This gladius in the maintz pattern has a faux ivory grip with ornate brass applique on the scabbard.
