Item Description

Ever popular, the Gladius is still in demand almost 2000 years later and is one of our most frequently requested swords to make, so we have decided to offer a modern version of this ancient classic in a very affordable machete/sword format. Derived from the sword used by Celtic tribes of ancient Iberia (Spain) and adopted by the Roman Legions, the Gladius, with its long, narrow point and wasp waisted blade, was the scourge of the battlefield and often the last thing seen or felt by Rome's enemies. Made from 1055 Carbon steel and hand sharpened to a murderous point and wicked edge, it offers 19 inches of unprecedented piercing and slashing power at a bargain price. Sporting an extra wide, full tang for strength and a classically inspired handle, it offers the standard guard and ball shaped pommel of years gone by. Made of high impact Polypropylene, it's impervious to the elements, rugged beyond belief and most importantly, comes compete with a sturdy Cordura sheath and belt loop.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5★ by 28reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by really good item sharp with murderous point on the end. Best machete I have ever seen or owned. 12/31/2012
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Came with a dull tip; finish is asymmetrical The tip was really dull and the black finish is very asymmetrical but the edge is very sharp. Very sturdy blade, but it was obviously made in a hurry and wasn't inspected at all for quality. Cuts right through branches and foliage. Also the "Warning: Very Sharp" sticker that was stupidly stuck right to the blade was a pain to remove and the adhesive junk is still there making the blade look awful. Would be amazing were it not for the tip, poor finish, and sticker though. If you want something to hang on the wall then get a real gladius but if you want a tool I definitely recommend this. DEFINITELY not a toy this thing is very dangerous. 03/25/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent, durable sword Incredibly sharp out of the box. Nicely styled. Durable, comfortable grip. Very low maintenance. Powerful blade cuts well, dulls slowly. Extremely pleased. 01/01/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Nice sword This review came a bit sooner than it should as I haven't had the time to give it a good test. The looks and heft of the sword is better than expected. 03/14/2013

Rated 4 out of 5★ by nice Is a bit heavy but feels very good in hand. Be careful of point though it is sharp enough to bend real easy. Overall awesome sword for money. 03/15/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Looks bad! The tip was misshapen and the edges were grinded uneven. I usually love cold steel products but this was in bad shape I returned it to the store no problem. I don't know maybe it was a lemon but it was not good quality at all. 09/11/2013
