Product Description

Details

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.

This sword ("gladius" in Latin) found in Mainz, Germany has a leaf-shaped, 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 bone grip is characteristic of this type of gladius and the guard prevents your hand from slipping onto the blade after a strong thrust. The ample pommel keeps your hand on the grip after strong cuts. A scabbard with ornamental brass applications comes with this Mainz type gladius.

Our Roman Mainz Gladius features a turned wood pommel and bone grip. The straight blade is hand forged from steel and is housed in a wooden scabbard with red leather covering and decorated brass fittings. This sword is not designed or recommended for contact reenactment (fighting) but is favoured by living history enthusiasts.
