Roman Maintz Gladius Sword

Most Early versions of the Roman Gladius were wasp waisted with a long point that combined cutting power and stabbing ability in one handy weapon. Some of the later versions (Like our Generation2/Legacy Arms version) were made with a straighter blade but still with the long point.  Even later versions (like the Pompeii pattern) were not waisted and also had a shorter point but were just as effective - and easier to make. Both swords served side-by-side for many years and it was not uncommon to find 4th century Legionnaires carrying either models. The gladius is known as "the sword that conquered the world". High carbon blade, hard wood handle.  High polished steel spacer at the bottom of the handle for strength and durability.  Sword also includes a wood scabbard wrapped in black leather with steel accents at throat and tip.

NOTE: The blade is flat. That is not a fuller in the picture.
