Roman Swords

The primary weapon of legionnaires, Roman soldiers would use their gladius in close combat as a stabbing, cutting, and chopping weapon. The Roman gladius was two-edged and featured a tapered point. The knobbed hilt often included ridges for the fingers to enhance its solid grip. In warfare, the gladius would often be thrust at the abdominal region or slashed at kneecaps vulnerable below the enemy shields. At Buying a Sword, we carry many excellent examples of this historical weapon, including several Mainz gladius and Pompeii gladius replicas. Our selection features both functional gladius and decorative gladius versions, including ornamental gladii with gold detailing and battle ready Roman swords will full tang construction. Whether you are interested in re-enacting the life of Julius Caesar, training for your next battle, or showcasing a unique Roman blade, you can find many great options here at Buying a Sword.
