This ‘’Munitions Grade” item is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades, basically rendering them as 2nds quality. These items are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting and functional pieces will still be functional. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

This 3rd Century Roman Spatha is based on swords found near Podlodow in Poland. Characterized by wide blades with more than a single fuller, these swords have been found in quantity beyond the ‘’Limes’’ the borders of the Empire and several examples have also been found within the boundaries of the Roman Empire. These swords may have been a common sight in the frontier forces of the Empire, but perhaps they were also trade or export items as well.

This replica has a blade of high carbon steel with long dual fullers on each side of the blade to reduce unnecessary weight to lighten the sword. The hilt is skillfully carved and polished hardwood which is embellished with brass banding. The sword is paired with a companion scabbard which is crafted from wood and bound in stitched red leather. The chape and suspension sling are crafted from brass and bands of tight black cord complete the scabbard.
