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.

Here is a PPT template you can download.

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.

Darken Upgrade:
Standard engraving is very nice, but the darken can really enhance the *POP* of the sword.

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.

Exceptional Service
The product is fantastic and the customer service is off the scale. They are very professional, and responsive to the my requests. This was not my first purchase with them and the high quality of service has been the same each time. The same can be said of the quality of the products they provide. I will continue to use and recommend this company for my gift purchases.

Everything from the communication with this company to the actual swords that I ordered was amazing. I received my items at least a week ahead of time. Customer service was amazing.

Outstanding Quality - Great Retirement Gift
This is a very well-crafted retirement gift for law enforcement of military personnel. All of the engraving is very crisp, and Purple Heart makes the design process easy. As usual, amazing customer service from beginning to end. Purple Heart is the best!!!
