1st Century Roman Centurion's Gladius with Celtic Embellishments

Recommended Posts

Here is one of my latest 1st Century Roman Centurion Gladii of the Fulham Style.  Made to historical measurements and materials.  Some is Historically Accurate and portions of it are made / customized to the customization desires of my client.  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 African Blackwood Ebony.  The Grip is hand carved from Italian Olive Wood.  The Augustus Capricorn Denarii Coin i created as a replica of a real coin.  The Coin and the brass rings in the guard are hand cast in my shop with the lost wax process.

This client is a Roman Reenactor who portrays a Centurion.  His character is 3rd Generation Roman Legionary whose family has a Celtic background.  The story behind the sword is that it was an "Award Sword" that was Awarded to his Grandfather from Caesar Augustus for "Valor on the Battlefield."  Thus the inset Augustus Capricorn Coin.  The Guard and pommel are hand carved in the style of pieces that are found in the Vindonissa Museum with the "Added" embellishments of the Celtic knots. (Not historically accurate, but customized and personalized for the client).  The inset Guard Plate is also engraved for personalization for the client with his Characters Legion Number.
