Ever popular, the Gladius is still in demand almost 2000 years later The Cold Steel version of this ancient classic, called the Gladius Machete, has been recreated into a formidable machete format for the modern warrior. Derived from the sword used by Celtic tribes of ancient Iberia (Spain) and adopted by the Roman Legions, the gladius, with its long, narrow point and wasp-waisted blade, was the scourge of the battlefield and often the last thing seen or felt by Roman enemies. Made from 1055 high carbon steel and hand sharpened to a murderous point and wicked edge, this Gladius machete offers 19 inches of unprecedented piercing and slashing power. Sporting an extra wide, full tang for strength and a classically inspired handle, it offers the standard guard and ball shaped pommel of years gone by. Made of high impact polypropylene, it is impervious to the elements, rugged beyond belief, and, most importantly, comes complete with a sturdy corduroy sheath and belt loop for easy storage and carry.

    The gladius machete, exceeded my expectations. It is just what I wanted. Good quality, looks good. Got no complaints at all.

    I just want to add, that the gladius was the only reason I gave the overall shopping experience a three.
