OVERVIEW

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. This is the sword that conquered most of the known world.

Originals of our replica 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 . The early gladius, like this Maintz pattern version, were wasp-waisted with a long point that combined cutting power and stabbing ability in one handy weapon. Our Maintz Pattern replica has a faux ivory grip with ornate brass applique on the scabbard. Made of high carbon steel by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Can be sharpened for an additional fee. Can be engraved with 3 initials.
