The Gladius is known as the sword that conquered the world. Although, the name gladius brings to mind the image of the gladiator, this is only partially correct. The gladiator used a variation of the gladius that was shorter than the sword used by the Roman soldier. This shorter sword was easier to use in close quarters, but it was also much more dangerous to use. Typically the gladius was used with the scutum (square Roman shield). The sword was used primarily for stabbing strikes, but the sword was also capable of slashing motions. The sword was so devasting that during the war with Macedonia the soldiers of Macedonia were terrified of the sword after seeing the wounds it inflicted.
This is a replica of the Gladius used by Gladiators of Roman. The sword is created in the traditional style used during the Roman period, with wooden fittings and a rhombus cross section.
