Pompeii Pattern Roman Gladius

Based on a circa 100 BC design. The origanals were excavated from the ruins of Pompeii. You can see examples in H. Russell Robinson's book "What The Soldiers Wore On Hadrian's Wall". The Gladius was an efficient weapon that excelled in close quarters combat situations. The later versions, like this Pompeii style, were not waisted and had a shorter point but were just as effective and easier to make.

Handcrafted from high carbon spring steel. Handle is turned ash and maple. Complete with scabbard that features brass trim. Ships with an unsharpened edge.

28" overall with a 19 1/2" blade. Weighs around 2 pounds 6 ounces.
