Not quite a gladius, too short to be a spatha, and too big to be a pugio, this Roman Short Sword is more of a balanced design based on the Roman style of sword-making, with a blade that stands out among examples of other Roman weapons. Nevertheless, the design is a sturdy one, if only for simplicity and effectiveness sake. Designed in the style of a gladius, the pommel is larger than the guard with a scaled pattern etched over the top. The hilt is brown, and ribbed for comfort and ease of grip. A disc-shaped guard separates grip from blade, with only a minor design for decoration. The blade is likewise simple - straight-edged and tapered to a fine point, making it appear more of a stabbing weapon then a cutting one. Features:
