Legacy Arms Maintz

Most early versions of the Roman Gladius were wasp wasted with a long point that combined cutting power and stabbing ability in one handy weapon. Some of the later versions like this have a straighter blade but still with the long point and slight re-curve. This piece is made with a high carbon spring steel blade and carved hard wood grip, guard and pommel. A high polished steel spacer at the bottom of the guard is added for strength and durability. This Roman sword also includes a custom fit wood scabbard wrapped in black leather with steel accents at throat and tip.

Reliks Review

This is an interesting Gladius that is very solidly built. Unlike many gladius the grip is generous in size making it very comfortable to wield for someone with larger hands. The larger grip is also matched with a slightly longer blade then found on most Gladius. You could almost call this sword a Short Spatha rather than a Gladius because of it's length. If you prefer a sword that you can feel than this is good for you. Coming in at 2 1/2 lbs it is a bit of a workout but also as a Spatha great for cleaving power from horseback. This is a nice sword with a great hand made feel and enough weight to command respect from the strongest of gladiators!
