The Condor Mainz Gladius Sword is an artful take on the traditional Roman Gladius. Roman legionaries carried this type of sword into battle and this sword would have easily served them just as well. It features an 18 3/4” 1075 high carbon steel polished blade that is incredibly sharp. The handle is of strong and beautiful Walnut wrapped with genuine leather as an additional accent. A Walnut scabbard houses the blade. This gladius sword is 28 5/8” in overall length.
