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.
