Renowned for its versatility and its potential, the gladius has remained a popular sword, even to this day. And this Mainz-Fulham Gladius shows why it had such potential, as this design recreates the thrusting and cutting form of this legendary sword. Historically, there were four main types of gladii, and the Mainz-Fulham, or more simply, the Fulham, was the forth type. This particular style of gladius was known for its straight edged blade and its sharply tapered point. The effect was that it still served to deliver devastating thrusts, while the straight blade gave it a longer cutting edge. This gladius features a classic handle, crafted from wood and adorned with brass rings and plates, to give it a more classic and decorated look. Included with the gladius is a brown leather sheath, for keeping the blade safe and secure when it is not in use. Small size and an iconic design make this Mainz-Fulham Gladius look like a sword right out of history, and that makes it a perfect addition either to your collection or to your nearly completed Roman soldier costume.
