    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 bought this about a week ago and i can not put it down. I bought the last 2 in the store. Me and my friends spar ALL the time. I would recomend this to anyone who is thinking about buying this. Good luck to eveyone out there. May your swords stay sharp.

    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.

    Medieval Practice Weapon - One Handed Sword

    This one handed Medieval practice sword is the perfect companion for medieval combat training in a completely safe manner. A wooden sword, or waster, allowed a warrior to practice full combat safely and economically while preserving his precious steel for the real battle to come. Fully seasoned and hand crafted in solid hardwood, with contrasting wood guard and pommel, to be strong enough to meet the needs of today's swordsman (or woman). Each can take the abuse of sparring and reenacting, even edge-to-edge. (Keep in mind, however, that wood can break along the grain.) The Medieval Practice Weapon design represents edged weapons common from the 12th to 15th centuries. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
