    Overall, this is by no means a bad sword however, the blade on mine was off centre and the glue holding it together looks dirty and chunky and eventually cracked. The sword itself is sturdy and reliable and can be used for sparring.

    I have seen other gladius's, and the quality was apalling! The blades were crooked, the quality of the wood was terrible at best! these are the abolute best that I have seen. I will recodmend them to anyone thinking of buying any of these practice blades.
