These are our Old World Style Rudis and are made for us in India. They are a darker wood on the blade and have a bit more handmade charm to them.

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: rudis.sword.proof@gmail.com and include order number.

3 Rudis-Old World Style swords for 3 Marines January 14, 2018
Reviewer: CAPT Harrold, NC, USN, Retired from NorCAl  
My Mother-in-Law retired from the Navy after 36 years of service. All 3 of her sons are United States Marines and she wanted a very unique way of expressing her appreciation to them for supporting her throughout her Naval career. My Husband, her middle son and Active Duty Marine, uses Purpleheart Armoury for many Marine "going away" or "end of tour" awards so I already knew he liked the products when I made the suggestion to my Mother-in-Law. She was able to pick the best gift that well suited all three sons and had them all personally engraved!! Their faces when they received their swords on stage during the ceremony was absolutely priceless!!

U.S. Army Cyber School Rudis Award October 27, 2017
Reviewer: Scott Armstrong from Augusta, GA United States  
Customer service was outstanding! Rebekah worked with me continuously on the design of the very first Cyber School Rudis Award.  The design was perfect and will be the model for future awards.  The order was processed and delivered to me in 6 days even with a short suspense.  Great company.  Will definitely recommend to other military organizations.
