The "Avenger" A Roman Gladius and Scabbard


Recommended Posts

Here is a recent 1st Century Roman Mainz Gladius i created and call "The Avenger" (Style) That is my own "Name" of the style of the hilt.  the "V" that is hand carved in the Guard, gives me the name.

 

It is totally Historically Accurate and based on Archeological Discoveries and measurements other than the blade is made of 1095.

The "Avenger"  hand carved hilt.  "V" for "VICTORY???" The hilt is hand carved based directly on archeological discoveries.

The Pommel and Guard are hand carved from European Black Walnut.  The Grip is hand carved from Italian Olive Wood.

Beautiful work! True works of art, the sheath and sword.  Not sure if it’s my imagination but the light reflection makes those grinds look like they are hollow/concave.....to me anyway.  Is it hollow ground and were the originals?  Thanks,  Clint
