BCI - Legendary Swords - the Aelutian GladiusBe the first one to write a review
IN STOCK & ON SPECIAL
From the Legendary Swords Project, the Aelutian Gladius. Hand made with a 5160 Spring Steel blade and premium fittings. Includes matching scabbard. Designed by SBG member and Legendary Swords contributor, A. Hoffman. FINAL CLOSEOUT SALE - Your one and only chance to own this unique blade design!
The 24.5" blade of the Aelutian Gladius is hand made from 5160 High carbon steel - and while it is loosely based on one of the longer styles of Roman Gladius, this sword has no historical precedent. With a wide, arrow head like blade, it excels in the thrust - capable of BISECTING a water filled bottle with a thrust! However, it can also be used to hack like an axe or slash like a knife, providing maximum versatility.
The fittings are blackened steel to prevent corrosion, while the handle and scabbard feature high quality leather over a wooden core. Hand made from start to finish and unlike the Legend, these are not mass produced but hand made by the artisans at Blade Culture International.

As BCI is a traditional sword forge, they do not mass produce their blades - so the time between restock can be many months. As these swords are in very limited supply and priced well below usual industry markups, it is highly recommended that if you want to secure one and they are in stock, you order as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
