This Damascus Late Roman Sword is modeled after the spatha, which was similar in nature to the gladius, except it featured a longer blade. This weapon also differs, as it features a stunning ripple to its steel that is only found in damascus weapons. Damascus steel, and consequently, damascus weapons, were fabled for their strength and their sharpness, as well as for their beauty. Looking at this Roman sword, it is not hard to see why they were so valued. This swords blade is crafted from quality steel, and it features elegant and stunning ripple patterns and textures that run the length of its blade. Combine this with its naturally dark hue, and the weapon takes on a whole new level of beauty. The swords edges are left unsharpened, which makes handling this sword fairly safe and easy, although wielders should be aware that while this sword can be swung in practice, it is not suitable for use in contact sparring, cutting practice, or even in sword-to-sword events. The swords hilt serves to further accent the weapons appearance. The hilt is carved from bone and features a half-sphere guard that keeps the hand away from the blade, while the grip is lightly ribbed to provide a secure hold. The pommel echoes the hilts carved look, possessing a long, arrow-shaped design that serves to help counter-balance the blades weight. If you have never before believed a sword to be beautiful, then it is quite possible that you have never seen a damascus blade like this one. The Damascus Late Roman Sword is a stunning weapon that would look perfect at any Roman generals side, as well as possessing a look that would make it a startling centerpiece in any weapon collection.
