Circa 100 AD
The distinct shape of the Pugio blade was excellent for a close-quarters fight, and was used throughout the legions. Although swords and knives were generally not worn by 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 newly won territory.

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. Based on remains in the British Museum. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts and comes factory sharp.

Can be personalized with 3 initials.
