    My second one! Great substitute if you don't want the steel Real McCoy version. Great ribbed grip and pommel. Nice feel when held in ones hand.

    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.
