Derived from the sword used by Celtic tribes of ancient Iberia (Spain) and adopted by the Roman Legions, the Gladius, with its long, narrow point and wasp waisted blade, was the scourge of the battlefield and often the last thing seen or felt by Rome’s enemies. Ever popular, the Gladius is still in demand almost 2000 years later and is one of our most frequently requested swords to make, so we have decided to offer a modern version of this ancient classic in a very affordable machete/sword format. Made from 1055 Carbon steel and hand sharpened to a murderous point and wicked edge, it offers 19″ of unprecedented piercing and slashing power at a bargain price. Sporting an extra wide, full tang for strength and a classically inspired handle, it offers the standard guard and ball shaped pommel of years gone by. Made of high impact Polyproplylne, it’s impervious to the elements, rugged beyond belief and most importantly, comes compete with a sturdy cordura sheath and belt loop.

  • Handle: 7-7/8″ Polypropelene
  • Steel: 1055 Carbon with Black Baked On Anti Rust Matte Finish

The Gladius Machete that isn’t a Machete? With anticipation I received my new Gladius Machete from Cold Steel, I collect edged weapons and currently have 11 machetes, all from Cold Steel except for two.This Gladius machete to me is a low cost sword masquerading as a machete, it is well built of quality 1055 carbon steel, it is light, agile and truly fun to play with (yes old farts like me still enjoy playing like the kid I once was), today I was a Roman Centurion cutting & slashing barbarian wild bushes on our property!Here…

The Gladius Machete It seems like it took too long to get here…maybe I’m just impatient…The box it came in was very damaged, mostly open, product completely visible…and had sticky crap all over it, like someone spilled a coke on it. Nasty!The blade, however, managed to not get spilled on…And once I discarded the nasty, horrible packing job…I was thrilled with the sword.The tip is so sharp, it’s practically ungodly. It’ll pierce anything living. Easily.The sharpness on either…
