Authentic Roman Gladius Sword - 24" High Carbon Damascus Steel

Introduction: Embark on a journey back to Ancient Rome with our meticulously crafted Gladius Sword, a symbol of Roman foot soldiers' might and skill. The Gladius, Latin for 'sword', was central to Roman warfare, especially during close combat following initial javelin attacks. Drawing inspiration from the Greek designs and later influenced by the Celtiberians, our Gladius is a replica of the renowned gladius hispaniensis - a testament to the Roman prowess in sword-making and military strategy.

Blade Craftsmanship: This Gladius is forged from pattern-welded Damascus steel, known for its exceptional hardness and striking layered appearance. Comprising 11 pieces of steel folded five times, the blade showcases an intricate 352-layer pattern. The core of this exceptional blade is high carbon 1095 steel - the apex of carbon steel in sword-making. This fusion results in a sword that is not only sharp and enduring but also resilient enough to withstand intense combat scenarios, reflecting a Rockwell hardness rating of 55-56 HRC.

Handle and Sheath Design: The sword's handle is crafted from quality wood, complemented by brass bolsters, ensuring a sturdy and comfortable grip. It is paired with a durable leather sheath, providing safe storage and adding to its authentic Roman aesthetic.

Detailed Specifications:

  • Handle Material: Wood with Brass Bolsters
  • Overall Length: 24 inches
  • Blade Hardness: 55-56 HRC on the Rockwell scale
  • Layer Count: 352 in Damascus steel
  • Sheath: Premium Leather
  • Blade Composition:

    • 5 pieces High Carbon Steel 1095
    • Progressive Layering Technique from 1st to 5th fold

Conclusion: The High Carbon Damascus Steel Gladius Sword, measuring 24 inches, is not just a weapon, but a piece of history. Ideal for enthusiasts of Roman history, collectors, and practitioners of historical martial arts, this sword is a tangible connection to the legendary Roman gladiators and soldiers.
