The Romans used a short sword because of the phalanx(pike) which prevented the use of longer swords. After breaking the defense of the phalanx it would then become a close combat. The Roman warrior would rush the enemy fighter and engage with all his attention at eye level while thrusting underhand with the sword. This version of the Roman sword is intricately detailed from the sculpted pommel down to the stainless steel blade. Overall length is 30". The sheath is trimmed with sculpted Roman scenes.
