Rome’s legions conquered much of the known world in the early centuries AD, armed only with shield, javelin, dagger and their most effective weapon, their sword, called a gladius.
As commanders of the Roman legions, Centurions were renowned for their leadership and bravery in battle. Celebrate your inner Centurion with our classic Roman sword (conquering optional).
Forged from steel, our sword features a historical blade length of 30” which was designed to maximize the ability of the soldier in stabbing and chopping (after charging under the cover of their shield).
Our sword features a classic hilt, carved with finger placements for a handle that maximizes a steady grip. The scabbard comes with a copper shield, featuring the hand-painted coat-of-arms granted to your historical family surname.
The intricate engravings on the metal hilt and scabbard honors the tradition of Centurions and high-ranking officials, whose swords were often ornate and decorated in recognition of their stature.
Simply provide the family surname at check out (and country of origin, if known), and we’ll do the rest, researching an extensive library of heraldic texts.
Then, the authentic coat-of-arms is hand-painted by a master artist with durable oil-based enamels for vibrant color and lasting finish.
