A Rudis was a gift to a gladiator for a special achievement. This signified his release from a slave to a freeman. Our Rudis is an excellent and unique give for someone who has completed service in the military, retired, or completed an academic achievement.
- We can engrave a corporate logo, military insignia, and/or text in a variety of fonts. Email instructions to: email@example.com and include order number.
We will hold $15 over and above the shipping amount if your order is due 7 days or less from the order date. This will expedite the process and eliminate the extra time to track down additional funds for fast shipping IF NEEDED.
Engraving for the first side of the rudis blade engraving is included. Engraving on each side of the guard or back side blade is additional. Please choose options when placing the order.
If we do not have the image on file, a one-time setup fee may be required. The cost will vary based upon complexity of the image. You will be told which graphic fee to choose if you send a logo for approval before ordering, otherwise choose 'no graphics fee'
One, hand-painted color can be added for an additional $15 minimum charge. Multiple colors may be added on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us to discuss.
If you'd like just the rudis, with no engraving, please TELL US! We will not process the order without emailed instructions. A note can also be made in the order comments.
