Legionarys Gladius (Full- Size Oak)

Product Code: TAOBLG

Rome's Legions first encountered this sword, literally at the sharp end, while fighting the Spanish soldiers in Hannibal's Carthaginian army. This, the Gladius Hispanicus (Spanish Sword) was soon adopted by all Rome's legions. Compared to their classic swords, this gladius had a shorter but stronger blade, ideal for their forward thrusting style of combat. In battle they tried to close in tight, pressing the enemy up against their rectangular Scutum shields as they thrusted their swords into the belly of the enemy.

58cm/22.75" long approx.
