The Generation 2 Roman Maintz Gladius features a sharpened carbon steel blade with heavy duty full length tang. Like most Maintz pattern swords the blade is waisted and flairs out toward the point offering a good thrust as well as cut. The hilt features a round hard wood guard, ball pommel and knurled wood grip with polished steel accents. Includes a black leather scabbard.
Generation 2 swords offer a great compromise between durability and weight. They are made for strength. They test them on 2x4s and telephone poles! As well as in direct steel to steel tests. We don’t recommend doing any of this with your sword, but it’s always nice to know it could.
