This sword is modeled after one of the longer blades wielded by the Legion during 3rd Century Rome, with one exception. That exception is that instead of regular steel, this Damascus 3rd Century Roman Spatha has a blade patterned after damascus steel. This sword is something of an anachronism, as damascus steel was not used in the Middle East until the 1100s, although given the swords appearance, not many will argue that point. This sword is a traditional Roman spatha, meaning that it is a Roman blade that is longer than the typical gladius, designed to both slash and stab with ease. The sword has straight edges and a tapered point, as well as a marvelously textured blade that is crafted from quality steel. The edges are left unsharpened, which means that it is a good weapon to handle and practice with, although wielders should not that the weapon is not designed for contact sparring, blade-to-blade fighting, or even cutting drills. The hilt is no less impressive, being carved from white bone to possess a distinctive spiral-patterned grip as well as a gem-like pommel. The final touch comes in the form of elegant brass furnishings that accent the hilts appearance quite nicely indeed. There is no competing with this damascus sword, as the Damascus 3rd Century Roman Spatha is simply too stunning and too great a blade to deny, which is why you should include it into your collection today!
