gladius

A Word on my Blog’s Philosophy.

I like to focus on tools we can use or carry daily.  You aren’t going to see many sports cars, fighter jets, or heavy weaponry here.  This shit’s personal.  

Except of course for swords.  Who doesn’t love swords?  You are going to see swords. Because when the apocalypse comes, the sword is going to be the deadliest weapon you have that won’t ever run out of ammo.

Roman Gladius with Bone Hilt, 1st-2nd Century AD

A gladius with lentoid-section forge-welded parallel-sided blade tapering at about 4/5ths of the length to an acute point; the wooden lower guard D-shaped with a bronze plaque beneath where the tang enters; bone grip, square in section with five raised ribs; lentoid-section D-shaped wooden pommel with collared bronze knop.

Order a sword built specifically for you. From initial design of concept through the fire and final handle assembly watch your sword come to life. Scabbard included with purchase and will vary on materials and decoration. I will start with a concept illustration based off of requested time period and other considerations. Then I will make a schematic and start the build. I blog my progress as I go so you can follow along with me. Timeline says 9-10 weeks but it can take longer depending on what is decided on.
*note: swords displayed are my creations, however items pictured are from previous builds and are not for sale.

Also, I just released some new pricing options for various lengths. Give it a look.


*Must be 18 years of age or older to purchase.
