The broad and powerful Decurio blade is of a type named today as ''Buch-Podlodów'' (and from its proportions classify as sub type 1). It is dated to the mid/late 2nd and 3rd century AD and examples have been found along the border of the Roman Empire towards Barbaricum, in Britain, and also beyond the boundary of the empire in what is today Poland, in the region of the Przeworsk culture.

The feel of this sword is like you would expect of a dedicated cutting sword. It has a pleasant forward pull that guides the hand during a cut, but its weight and length works together so that the heft is never overpowering. A sword like this is effective and practical in close quarter fighting. It delivers powerful cuts with little effort. The grip has strong tactile qualities providing the warrior a good awareness of the weapon, and indicates clearly the direction of the edge. The shaping of the guard and pommel also plays a role: the grasp of the hand is met by a response like a firm handshake.

The Albion Decurio Roman Spatha features a tempered high carbon steel blade with hard wood hilt components.
