Now i know the title sounds bad but it really isnt a bad blade. I was expecting it to be sharp but it is solely a Decoration piece only. The Scabbard is not real wood it is a kind of plastic. The engravings and etchings in the blade are done very nicely but as for the actual purpose if you really want to sharpen it and you or someone you know has the skill. This is a great buy for looks, i give this 5
I ordered this because the picture on the website looked great. Once I received this the scabbard which i assumed to be wood was plastic and just solid brown, not even painted to resemble wood. i was severely disappointed, and the sword it self was dull.
it was PLASTIC! the whole scabbard. The chain was very weak. But it looked great on my wall. for so cheap$ great buy
Fabulous sword. I teach high school Western Civilization and my students love it when I bring in "hands on" stuff, like swords, shields, pikes, helmets, etc. This sword looks great, has a nice feel to it and really captures the eye. Kennesaw has done it again! I have yet to be disappointed with any purchase. Kennesaw allows me to purchase historical swords at a price I can live with. No, my school doesn't reimburse me for military "show & tell"! Buy with confidence!
It's a good sword and I think it looks pretty awesome. I love Roman stuff, so that's why I got it. My only complaints are: 1. The wood is actually plastic 2. The handle wobbles(it holds but it feels unsteady) 3. It doesn't come with a wall mount. It's only forty bucks so it's totally worth it. Apart from these defects, it's a great sword and I wasn't disappointed.
My daughter wanted her own sword for her wall, as the rest of the family already has. She could have chosen anything that she wanted. We went through all the websites of all the major and some minor players that I am sure you all know. I tried to sway her to carbon steel, but as she is studying roman history she wanted this Gladius due to the look. It took a bit of time to get here but the suspense was fun for me. When it arrived she was very happy, it was just what she wanted. Now for my assessment. It was pretty. This scabbard looked just like the picture. It was blunt all the way around, but now I can take it in for show and tell before I put the edge on it. I have a washing machine motor hooked up with a huge round oil stone on it for swords and machetes, so it will be no issue. Mixed with a metal file an edge will be here shortly. My issue was when the pummel was put on it was miss aligned. There is a decent gap on one side and an overlap on the other. Another metal file job, some j.b weld on the other and a little pewter colored model touch up paint and we are happy. It cost 40 bucks you get what you pay for. Don't hate, get to work and do what you want to it. I always want to be able to get one jab in case of S.H.T.F.. Remember its a poker not a hacker hence the tip. With this metal it might bend if you whack something. I rate this as a novelty. Enjoy it for what it is.
Very impressed with the quality of the sword. Great addition to my collection
The sword came today I LOVE IT. I also got a Celtic Dagger & a william Wallace sword. The sheath on the wallace sword is nott the best but will sell it self. The dagger is great , it will bring top dollar when it sell's.
The Gladius Sword is a good product, well made for the price paid. Expected the blades to be a bit sharper - perhaps its only for costume wear. I was a bit disappointed that the scabbard is yellow/orange color. Expected it to be brown as is shown in the advertisement.
So I got this sword for a christmas present and was very dissapointed. It wasnt smooth taking it out of the sheath and it wasnt sturdy at all. Also it was very dull i would give it one more star just becuase it looks nice
This Roman Gladius is exceptional. Of all the Gladius' for sale, this one is the best looking and the highest quality. If BUDK gets them in again I'll buy another. The Scabbard was going for a blond wood look. In that period, soft blond wood was known for it's water absorption properties verses the hardwoods: oaks and cherries. Blond wood wicked moisture away from the blade and helped to keep it from rusting. If you've ever seen a real Gladius from 10 centuries ago, the scabbards have an orange tinge to them from the wood preserving stain they used. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.
My ONLY complaint is that the scabbard is orange, not the wood color on the web page. That being said, it still looks nice, and people love to look at it.
This sword is amazing!! Just got it today and I love it. Very good looking wood handle and sheath. Steel blade also. Great buy this thing is worth like $100 but its only $40 on budk great buy. Thanks BUDK.
This sword is great, just got it today and the look of it is great. REAL wood handle and sheath and steel blade. Great buy this thing looks like it could be over 100 dollars, thanks BUDK.
The sword is far more realistic than the scabbard. Still, all things considered, worth the price.
I have purchased a lot from BudK and have been very pleased with the service and quality. The overall construction of this sword is great. But the finish looks like Charlie Browns the great pumpkin would carry it. There are really no wood lines showing. Its a shame really, the sword looks cool the coloring just is very lacking. First disappointment with a Christmas gift I received from here. If I do keep it, will definitely repaint the 'wood' finish.
This is a great, unique gift for best man or groomsmen. I got this for my 2 best men, and while it is not the wooden look on the sheath (more like orange-ey), it still has some cool stenciling on the sword. The price is good, the sword is large, and for all my research in gifts, nothing came close to sheer awesomeness. Strength and honor.
AWESOME SWORD!! Nice wood and metal engraving good show piece .But the only problem I had with the sword was the chain is weak as hell!!lol ,put it on my belt fell right off lol!!. Plus not sharp which might be good at a halloween party with a bunch of drunken moron's lol ,but good sword
Attractive attention getter. Not a real sword, of course, so don't try to use it as such. Would be a good display piece, too.
