Show your gladius off!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe, but its still inaccurate.

This is the new one, it kind of replaces both AH2002 and the one I have (AH2004 I believe). The scabbard and blade are far better, but that hilt needs work.

Hello, I guess depending on what you mean by reenactor not sure if i'd call myself one. I just love duel with my friends. My scutum is smaller augustan style. i think the sword is magnus i can't really remember.

Mike,
Reenactor or not, you still have a nice shield and good gladius Smile

Magister,
That new spatha looks like a cross between your spatha and the AH2002. Looks better, but the hilt does need work.

Very nice sword and scabbard! Probably cost a lot of money, but well worth it.

Very nice! Who made the scabbard? Good buy!

Thanks, the scabbard was made by PierPaolo Siercovich and fits the sword perfectly.

I just got a new Kopis today, and the scabbard has a very tight fit. I guess that is what you get for $47 dollars. Very nice sword for the money though, and has great brass hilt Smile I hope that my gladius will come in soon!

Are spathas allowed on this thread as well?

(Pretty please?)

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!

I guess spathas could be allowed... I should have called this "show off your Roman weapons". Evan posted about the spatha that he will work on, so I am now opening this topic to all Roman edged weapons.

Goodo - as a kindly Moderator I will amend your thread title.

But I do need to take a photo of the blade...

Made by our very own XorX with bronze work done by Stefan.

Thank you Vindex for changing the thread title. Your Hod Hill style spatha looks excellent! Very good work by XorX! Scabbard looks great! Grip, pommel, and guard absolutely gorgeous! Bronze work is superb!

Very nice - who were the various makers? They look very accurate and good for reenactment. Great swords!
