  • The Eagle - Eagle Head Gladius

    This official gladius is a detail-rich replica of the eagle sword from the movie. Of tempered carbon steel, the blade tapers from the cross guard into a kind of waistline, widening again before the point. This style of blade was named after Mainz, Germany, its place of discovery, and is the highest quality variant of the Roman gladius. The leaf-shaped Mainz blade was sturdier, heaver and better balanced than the Pompeii and Hispanicum styles. Officers in particular were equipped with this kind of gladius.

    You can tell from the elaborate decoration of this gladius that this isn't a mere legionary sword. The finely crafted grip with decorative patterns ends seamlessly in the sculptural eagle head – by far the most distinctive feature on this exceptional sword. Covered with dark leather, the wooden scabbard boasts richly decorated metal plates. The relief on the chape shows a ruler surrounded by soldiers, and depicted on the throat is a legionary standing in front of a Roman temple. On the central plates there are classical Roman laurel vines completed by a laurel wreath insignia in the middle of the scabbard. A leather shoulder strap is attached with metal rings to the scabbard. All metal parts have been artificially antiqued to give the Eagle Head Gladius an especially battle-tested look.

  • Roman Pompeii Gladius

    This sword ("gladius" in Latin) was found in Pompeii, Italy and has a straight, double-edged blade. It was as effective for cuts as it was for thrusts, which means it was the perfect sword for close combat.

    The entire hilt, including the grip, is made of selected hardwood: ash and maple, to be precise. The guard prevents your hand from slipping down the blade after a strong thrust. The ample, ball-shaped pommel keeps your hand on the grip after strong cuts. A scabbard with ornamental brass applications comes with this Pompeii type gladius.

    Total length: 69 cm
    Blade length: 51 cm 
    Grip length: 8.5 cm 
    Weight: 0.77 kg 
    Blade thickness (base): 4.2 mm

    Pommel: Threaded
    Scabbard: Wood, Leather, Brass

  • US Navy Cutlass M1860

    1 Review(s)

    Starting in 1860, US Navy M1860 cutlasses were manufactured for the US Navy in Chicopee, MA. They continued to be used after the Civil War broke out. Our replica has the marks you would expect to see on an original: "USN DR 1862" and "AMESMFGCO CHICOPEE MASS" to show that the cutlass is military issue and who manufactured it.

    Heavily influenced by the sabre used by the French navy, our US Navy Cutlass M1860 is a replica of the model that replaced the M1841. The slightly curved blade has a wide fuller that ends in the area of the point where the broad backstops and the false edge begins. The blade geometry of the M1860 makes it extraordinarily light. Held in place by a riveted pommel and the full knuckle bow at the hand guard, the wooden grip of this naval cutlass is covered in leather and wrapped with twisted, golden wire. It includes a leather scabbard with a frog for holding the scabbard.

    Total length: 80 cm
    Blade length: 65.5 cm
    Grip length: 11 cm
    Weight: 0.86 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.3 mm
    Blade width (base): 3.1 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 11 cm
    Blade: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Brass

  • Pirate Captain's Hanger

    On board ship, weapons were usually kept under lock and key. Mutinying crew members could have turned angry words into bloody deeds too easily if they were carrying weapons. But the captain had a special role and was of course allowed to have his saber or hanger at his side at all times.

    Our officer hanger has a modestly curved blade with a narrow fuller that extends over three-quarters of the length of the blade. This saber has a one handed grip wrapped in leather. The hand guard includes a crossguard that extends toward the pommel. The ball-shaped pommel is decorative, but it also contributes to the balance of our officer hanger, which comes with a scabbard.

    Total length: 83 cm
    Blade length: 66 cm
    Grip length: 10.5 cm
    Weight: 0.98 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.4 mm

  • Medieval Bar Mace

    This staff-shaped mace is a simple weapon. It may lack a certain degree of elegance, but its massive solidity more than makes up for that. And it is very easy to use: pick it up by the wooden grip and start landing blows. When this medieval Italian mace gets going, neither sword nor armor nor bones are safe. Form follows function in this case: it destroys everything it comes into contact with. This mace is nothing less than the advanced development of the club and was used by hosts of foot soldiers and fighting farmers throughout Europe.

    Our special model is based on a mace found during excavations on the Thames River. It features a two handed grip made of wood wrapped with a double layer of leather and a pommel to balance out the weight of the crossed steel plates.

    Total length: 74 cm
    Head length: 51.5 cm
    Grip length: 18 cm
    Width (base): 2.9 cm
    Width (point): 5.3 cm
    Weight: 2.10 kg
