The Honshu Gladiator Sword combines a classically deadly close-in combat design of antiquity with sleek tactical design and modern materials and manufacture. The blade is sharpened 7Cr13 stainless steel which is mounted into a hilt of hardened thermoplastic rubber for a no-slip and moisture-resistant grip. A pre-drilled brass-edged hole at the base of the grip readily accommodates the addition of your own wrist lanyard. The sword is paired with a durable leather scabbard with a buttoned retaining strap and an integrated belt loop.
