Exact copy of the Gladius (sword) used by General Maximus in the Hit Film “GLADIATOR”.
DESCRIPTION: The Roman Gladius Sword was a short and powerful weapon designed primarily for stabbing and jabbing enemy soldiers at extremely close quarters. Roman soldiers were impeccably trained how to use the Gladius and the Battle Shield together to inflict injury and death upon all adversaries. The Gladius was the primary battle weapon of the Roman foot soldier. From the blood-soaked gladiator arenas to the brutal carnage of the battlefields, “Gladiator” offered an unflinching look at the honor and savagery required of Roman Warriors. Equally unflinching were the film’s prop designers who paid homage to the era with weaponry crafted in beautifully authentic detail and design. The Sword of Maximus, an exact preproduction of the sword used by General Maximus in the film, showcases this attention to authenticity. Mirror-polishedstainless steel double-edged blade, specifically drawn and tapered to encourage severe and lethal wounds. The hilt runs a glorious gamut of textures, materials and tones: brass-adorned wooded guard and ball pommel bookend in striking off-tone contrast the milky elegance of the imitation ivory grip. Comes with a belted, leather-wrapped wooden scabbard. Scabbard is brass-accented at throat and tip. Great item for the historical collector!
"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, Loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife and I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next!"
