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.
  • View the display photos for examples of engravings or visit our Facebook Page.
IF YOU WANT A BLANK RUDIS, TELL US OTHERWISE WE WILL WAIT FOR AN EMAIL WITH ENGRAVING FROM YOU. You can put a note in the order comments.

Text-only engraving on one side: Fill out form and email us.

Note:
New unit graphics cost more if we do not have it or cannot find it. We require a high resolution black and white image.

Features
Only the Emperor could grant a Gladiator his freedom. That freedom could be obtained if the Gladiator bravely distinguished himself in a particular fight or if he had fulfilled his contract. The symbol of freedom given to a Gladiator was a wooden sword called a Rudis.

Also, EVOCATUS, was the Latin term for a soldier in the Roman Army who had served out his time and obtained a discharge.

Top notch product that was matched by the customer service. I couldn't be happier  with the Rudis. As an added bonus they had shipped to me within 4 days of placing the order.
