5160 Spring Steel slightly wasp waisted blade Roman Gladius with Wood Core Leather Lined Scabbard.
Augustus Mainz Gladius Sword: Most Early versions of the Roman Gladius were wasp waisted with a long point that combined cutting power and stabbing ability in one handy weapon. Some of the later versions were made with a straighter blade but still with the long point. Even later versions (like the Pompeii pattern) were not waisted and also had a shorter point but were just as effective - and easier to make. Both swords served side-by-side for many years and it was not uncommon to find 4th century Legionnaires carrying either models. The gladius is known as "the sword that conquered the world".
The Kingdom of Arms version of the Mainz Gladius is made to their exacting specifications by the esteemed forge of Blade Culture International, has a hand hammered 5160 carbon steel leaf blade as the originals were made, full tang, heat treated and tempered as the originals, for a strong yet flexible blade that will hold a very sharp edge, exotic hardwood handle and a wooden scabbard with brass accents.
