Like the Roman gladius, the pugio was originally a Spanish weapon. The Romans always knew a good weapon when they saw it, so soon after encountering the armies of the Iberian peninsula, the pugio was incorporated into the legionary’s arsenal. Traditionally worn on the left hip, with the gladius on the right (reversed for officers) and secured directly to it’s own belt or to the same one as the sword.
This Roman Pugio features an unsharpened carbon steel blade with central ridge. The steel grip is built over the blades full tang, riveted through the layers of steel and wood. The included scabbard is made of steel with a leather lined interior and brass hanging rings.
