Gladiators used wooden swords for training, but if a gladiator survived the arena and lived long enough to retire, he would be awarded a wooden gladius as a token of freedom. Our Wooden Training Gladius harkens back to this tradition. This wooden gladius is a great piece for honing your own gladiatorial skills. It is completely made of wood with a contrast finish decorating its pommel and guard. The grip is contoured for an authentic look and better hold. A fantastic alternative to a real sword, this wooden practice weapon is great for light training or circumstances where a real steel weapon is not needed.
- Great for light practicing and training

I purchased two of these Wooden Gladius swords to be used as going away presents for officers in my unit (U.S. Army). The quality of the swords is excellent, and we were able to inscribe words along the blade for the gift presentation. I will most likely be purchasing these again!
