Roman Gladius-Pompeii

Circa 100 Gladius

The Roman Army's approach to warfare was direct and pragmatic. It chose the Gladius as its principal sidearm because the gladius was practical and efficient and excelled in any close combat situation. Later versions of the Roman gladius (like the Pompeii) had a shorter point but were just as effective - and easier to make. This is the sword that conquered most of the known world. The Pompeii has an ash and maple handle with a functional high carbon steel blade. The original Roman gladius 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." CIRCA 100

Rated by people who own this product

"This Roman Gladius was exactly what I was looking for. It gave me "chills" when I removed it from the packaging. To have a functional Roman sword in my hands, gave me a deeper historical appreciation which I could never get from a book. Thank you Reliks & staff!!! Great website, friendly staff, FANTASTIC sword!!!" - (5/5)

"The sword craftsmanship is excellent, a fine piece. The scabbard however comes across as cheap, doesn't do the sword justice." - (4/5)

"the Gladius gets a 5, it is a great sword, sturdy, solid, easy to use. The sharpening service did a great job on it as well. The rating comes down because the scabbard is a bit light and the throat needs a bit more leather so the sword doesn't move around at all. I can fix it, so I don' mind. The sword makes it well worth the price." - (4/5)
