The Roman Centurion was a position of respect and distinction for a great warrior. Centurions were professional soldiers in command of unit called a century that was made up of 80 legionnaires. Some of the greatest Centurions could earn the command of a Cohort which was comprised of 6 centuries equalling 480 soldiers or even find themselves in higher ranking positions in the legion. These leaders bridged the gap between commissioned officers and enlisted legionnaires. When at war they would always position themselves on the front line with the common soldier, fearlessly leading them into battle.
This Roman Centurion Gladius was built as a tribute to these fearless fighting men. The blade is hand forged from a 1065 high carbon steel with a diamond cross-section. This raised the centre of the blade so that it was thicker than the edges. This gives the sword the ability to deliver a very powerful thrust while retaining the ability to deliver equally powerful slashes. Made from wood and metal fittings like the originals all of the metal parts have been hand finished giving them a beautiful antiqued patina. The gladius comes with a wood scabbard wrapped in an oxblood leather and antiqued metal highlights embossed in a roman pattern motif. The sheath is also fitted with a baldric ready to wear if attending a roman re-enactment, fair or event. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts and comes factory sharp.

"I was very impressed with the look and feel of the sword. The sharpening service left an incredible edge. It has been so fun slashing and stabbing gallon jugs full of water " - Howard (3/5)
"The sword is great, but the scabbard has some weld marks on it and some of the metal is folding in a way that makes it look sloppy and cheap. " - Kevin (4/5)
"This is a very nice feel good sword. The scabbard is a little loose. Other than that it's nice for the price." - Clay (4/5)
