Roman Gladius Sword & Sheath

Brand: John Barnett

The Roman Gladius was the sword of choice for the legions. Two primary weapons were carried by each soldier: a pilum or pila (plural) and the gladius, a short thrusting sword used in close combat. Part of what made the Roman army such an effective fighting force on the battlefield was the success of the gladius. Its relatively small and light size made it perfect for stabbing in close combat. In combination with the Roman shield, the scutum, the legionnaire was a deadly fighter.
