The Combat Commander Gladius Dagger may be small, but it packs just as much punch as its larger cousin - the legendary Roman Gladius. This 9 1/2" dagger-sized version mirrors the iconic Roman sword - made famous by generations of fierce gladiators - in shape, overall design and features. It boasts a potent black 4 3/4" double-edged 1065 carbon steel blade that stays razor sharp longer than those forged from ordinary stainless steel. The slip-resistant rubberized TPR handle is ergonomically molded, which, combined with its well-balanced weight distribution, makes the Gladius Dagger a real pleasure to wield. It includes a tough nylon belt sheath with a reinforced leather tip for easy carriage and protection through decades of even the harshest conditions. You don't have to be a gladiator to fall in love with the Gladius Dagger. Wield it once and you're hooked!
