Roman Daggers and Roman Pugio
Roman Soldiers carried roman daggers called pugio. Pugio daggers had very short but wide leaf type blade, about 7 to 11 inches long. These Roman daggers replicate originals that have survived in remarkably good condition in a European museum. The Roman pugio was used for stabbing and thrusting when fighting in close quarters with the enemy. When they were in close formation and the sword or spear could not be used, the Roman dagger was the next weapon of choice. Roman daggers were the basic part of the Roman army gear. Medieval Collectible's pugios are very functional and can be used in roman reenactments.
