The Roman Parazonium Dagger was, as a symbol, often associated with and carried by Virtus, a lesser-known Roman god who presided over bravery and military strength - the very personification of virtue, valor, excellence, courage, and worth. Generally more symbolic than anything, the parazonium was often carried by leaders, by gods, and by emperors to give them an aura of courage, allowing them to embody the positive qualities that Virtus, the god, personified. The dagger was, historically, a triangular shaped blade, and that quality is not lost here. The blade is made from steel and features stiff spine and an angular point, as well as a cast-brass hilt. The wooden grip is tipped with a matching brass pommel as well, and the whole thing is completed by a matched brown leather sheath, with brass adornments on the throat and chape. Rarely was a blade like this Roman Parazonium Dagger used in combat. Instead, it was a favored tool for rallying the troops, making it a powerful symbol of might and leadership for any Roman war-leader or emperor, or modern-day reenactor, to favor as a part of their authentic look.
