1st Century Roman "Fulham" Gladius and Scabbard

Recommended Posts

Here is one of my latest 1st Century Roman "Fulham" Gladius and Scabbards.  Made to historical measurements and materials.  Everything is created by hand right here in my shop.

1075 High Carbon Steel Fully tanged and peened hilt.   Inset Brass Guard Plate and Pommel Finial.  The guard grip and pommel are hand carved in European Boxwood (Bauxwood). 

The scabbard has Veg-tanned leather over wood core. All of the metal pieces are brass.  I create the historically accurate repousse~ raised and chased Locket Plates.  The Chape is Repousse~ with cut-aways.  The Suspension rings and Chape Finial are cast in brass with the lost wax process.  The Guard plate is also engraved to personalize the piece for my client.

Wow!  Beautiful.  Are the panels on the scabbard done with reposse or pres blech?  They’re great.  I’d love to see a closer shot of the whole handle.
