The gladius is the traditional sword of ancient roman soldiers. It was most often used in conjunction with a shield in close hand-to-hand combat. Our gladius features a traditionally styled hilt with the most popular blade style, the Pompeii. This blade had parallel cutting edges and a short triangular point for thrusting. Our gladius is perfect for arming any roman legionnaire and pairs well with one of our shields.
