Roman Swords and Gladius Swords
The Legionaries of the Roman Empire used a short sword called a gladius sword. The Gladius sword was an average length of 18 to 24 inches long and was made by the Spaniards. The primary function of the Roman sword was for thrusting and stabbing in close quarters with the enemy. Medieval Collectibles has fully functional Roman swords like the Roman Gladius Sword, Gladiator Sword, Roman Short Sword, and the Spartha sword. Roman Swords can be used for Stage re-enactments, theater, or take them to a Roman event. Other Roman swords are for costume purposes and are purely for decorative use.
