    The Roman Gladius was the primary weapon of the Roman Legionary and was used in conjunction with the 'Scutum' (shield) and 'Pilum' (spear). Its design was strongly influenced by the swords used by the Iberian (Spanish) Celts. It was predominantly designed as a thrusting weapon and was in use in one form or another from the 4th Century BC to the 3rd Century AD.

    The Roman Wooden Sword is a replica based on historical research and is authentic in its design. These were typically used by Romans for combat training. This wooden sword is perfect for practising your sword-fighting skills, or when you simply can't carry steel to an event.
