Roman Pugio Battle Sword
c. 100 B.C.
The distinct shape of the Pugio sword blade, based on a historic artifact in the British Museum, was excellent for close-quarter fighting, and was used throughout the legions. Although civilians within the boundaries of the "Pax Romana" generally did not wear swords, barbarians and bandits were certainly to be found in the outlands, and a merchant best be armed when traveling. No doubt many an old Roman legionnaire found it easier to keep his balance with the familiar weight on his hip as he worked his farm in newly won territory. The hardwood hilt is paired with a hand-forged blade of high carbon steel, tempered for strength and meticulously polished to a superb finish. This is one of the strongest and finest swords available. Hand-crafted by the famed metalsmiths at Windlass Steelcrafts. Comes complete with a wood scabbard hand-covered in leather with brass parts. Can be professionally sharpened for an additional fee. Please note that sharpened swords cannot be returned.

Overall: 19" Blade: 12"Lx2"W. 3/16" thick. 1 lb.
