There are a few weapons that are familiar and well recognized even to those with no interest in the subject. Weapons such as the Nepalese Kuhkri, the English Longbow, the Kentucky Rifle, and the Colt Peacemaker receive almost instant signs of recognition throughout the world. Another weapon to be included in this pantheon of well-known designs is undoubtedly the Roman Gladius.
This blade features a pleasing burnished finish, which is evenly applied and very attractive. The blade's central ridge is subtle. As the blade meets the hilt it is reinforced by a steel plate that has been cleanly set into the sword's lower guard. The upper and lower guards are fashioned from tropical hardwood that is very pleasing in both colour and grain structure. A grip made from real bone completes the assembly. The entire assembly is secured by a bronze pommel nut through which the tangs runs. All components are well fitted with no overlapping or gaps in the assembly of this sword.
