Roman Swords

The soldiers of the Roman Empire used a legionary short sword called a gladius as they went to war. The Gladius short sword averaged 18 to 24 inches in length, its design inspired by Spanish blades. The primary function of this Roman sword was for thrusting and stabbing in close combat with the enemy. Medieval Collectables carries an excellent selection of fully functional Roman soldier swords like gladiator swords, Roman spatha, Mainz gladii, Pompeii gladii, sica swords, Roman dolch swords, and more. Many of our Roman centurion swords and legionnaire blades can be used for stage performances, re-enactments, or historical events, while other decorative swords are ideal for collectors.
