Great Rudius
Perfect for use as a decorative piece, practice sword, or safe sword to go with an outfit. Made with a sturdy wood and has a nice finish. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a sword for play, practice, or display with an outfit without having a real blade.

On the wall next to my Gladius- The Pompeii. Very pleased with the workmanship and price. Care in shipping and packaging and promptness also great. Like to think of it as my reward for many decades of survival in the arena of life!

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.
