The Roman Gladius In the third century BC, Rome fought against the Iberian Celts and their iron weapons, gaining so much respect for their short swords that they adopted the design as their own. The sword that eventually conquered most of the then-known world evolved from the Gladius Hispanicus - Spanish sword. Originally a stabbing weapon, the Gladius quickly became a cut-and-thrust sword, with a long point and a slightly waisted blade - arguably the most elegant of Roman sword types.

  Our CAS HANWEI Roman Letter Opener replicates a Roman Gladius the sword that built the fabulous Roman Empire, earning its reputation in the hands of Legionnaires on the battlefield and Gladiators in the arena. Makes a unique gift.
