I have been eyeing this gladius for awhile and finally bought one. I was very surprised at how nice this sword is. The Damascus steel hammering pattern is as good as some of my very expensive knives in this steel. It is well made, quite beautiful, the pommel is tight and solid, the inlay is well done, and I am liking it a lot. I wish the nut on the end of the pommel was about a 2-3" spike. Otherwise, get one!
This is a nice sword the folded steel is not consistent between the two blades, as are the handles, and they have a rat tail tang. Nice weight swings well they came with a small amount of storage rust. The sheath is leather and the belt loop is very thin not sure this will last on a belt. It did come sword sharp and feels good in my hands I bought two (BOGO) this is a good sword for the money. Hope to use it in the field will up date my review as I go. I think it earned 4 1/2 stars for the rat tail tang and thin belt loop.
Okay so this sword is expensive but it is a really good blade. It feels great to handle, it is very sharp, and it is light which is what short swords are meant to be like. This would make the Romans proud
