After a long time, our wooden gladius is back. This is our strong hickory sparring version. Not to be confused with our beautiful awards rudis. But is made of 3/4" impact grade hickory and good for renactors and martial arts training.

Excellent Training Sword April 13, 2016
Reviewer: T. Patrick Flynn from Oro Valley, AZ United States  
I acquired these to use as a quality ready made general and modern "tactical" short sword sized waster and am very happy with my purchase and customer service. This gladius style waster is an excellent choice for historical and modern design straight-bladed double- edged short sword training. The construction is robust and the design, shape, and weight combine to give the proper feel of a sword with general safety concerns well addressed. The size of the guard is more like what is typically found with many modern "tactical" design short swords and the Roman style pommel aids in retention, at times a special consideration. Highly recommended.
