This sword is now available Standard or Fully Tempered!
The Praetorian is our highest end Roman Gladius. With a beautiful high-carbon steel blade, signature V-tip design, stunning polished-hardwood hilt and a blow-your-socks-off gilded sheath, it doesn't get much better. The sword is very similar to our Type III Gladius, but with a killer, praetorian style sheath.
The round Pompeii-style pommel and guard on this sword surround a stylish and comfortable ridged grip made of bone. The blade has a rhomboid cross-section, giving it additional strength, and ends with a sharp-angled "V" perfect for thrusting as the Romans tended to do.
The sheath on this sword merits a bit of discussion. An ornate, intricate web of brass spreads across the sheath. These designs make this sword equally as attractive sheathed or drawn.
If you like our Type III gladius and want better materials and a gorgeous sheath, then the Titus III is your sword.
