Derived from the sword used by Celtic tribes of ancient Iberia (Spain) and adopted by the Roman Legions, the Gladius, with its long, narrow point and wasp waisted blade, was the scourge of the battlefield and often the last thing seen or felt by Rome's enemies. Ever popular, the Gladius is still in demand almost 2000 years later and is one of the most frequently requested swords to make, so Cold Steel® has decided to offer a modern version of this ancient classic in a very affordable machete/sword format.
·19" SAE 1055 carbon steel blade
