A Roman sword is a pretty cool thing. It conjures up images of ancient battlefields, fierce gladiator skirmishes, and long-forgotten conquests. But you know what would make a Roman sword even cooler? Knowing that its Latin name is “gladius.” Seriously, how cool a name is that? Compare the difference between stepping into battle shouting “Prepare to taste my sword!” versus “Prepare to taste my gladius!” Swords are great and all, but a gladius? Now that’s a weapon that means some business.
Of course, if you go around your next costume party pointing out your gladius to people, you’re probably going to get mostly confused looks. Maybe it’s best to play it safe and just stick with “sword,” as long as you know in your heart that you’re secretly carrying something that much cooler. This particular sword and/or gladius is made from sturdy plastic, measures in at 15 inches long, and comes with a handy brown sheath so you can free your sword hand for grabbing snacks. It’s an ideal addition to any gladiator or warrior costume, because no matter what you choose to call it, a Roman sword is a pretty cool thing.
- Great gladiator sword with scabbardBy DM | October 30, 2021
Size StandardUsed this gladiator sword and scabbard with Roman General costume. It has holes in the back of the scabbard so you can lace a cord through it and tie around your waist. It was much better than having to carry around a sword all night, while juggling food and drink.Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.Was this review helpful to you?
