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.

Named for the Murmillo Gladiator who was equipped with the Gladius and Scutum shield in similar fashion to a Roman Legionary, this blade is brutal in it’s simplicity. It features a sharpened blade of hand forged 1095 high carbon steel with an acutely pointed tip. The blade is in the Roman ‘’Fulham’’ style with straight edges and an elongated thrusting tip, well suited to the arena. The guard and pommel are carved from wood and the grip is polished bone. The oval guard plate and pommel nut are crafted from brass.

The scabbard is crafted from stitched leather in a dark brown color. The brass hanging rings are fitted to leather bands that are fixed into position with stitches to complete the scabbard.

Though named after a type of Gladiator, this gladius would be equally at home in the hand of any Roman soldier of the time. The Devil’s Edge Murmillo Gladius may be a short sword with a tip perfectly formed for thrusting into a target, but its sharp and wide blade body with straight edges make it a fierce chopping sword in close quarters. It is a fast and agile sword that brings decisive strikes to the target in quick succession.
