This sounds... offensive? Confusedhock: Big Grin

I have only a semispatha. Do I qualify?

Sorry, no gladius, but a spatha.

Here's my son back when he was 1 or 2, already playing with the thing.

Mine too is a Spatha. The locket plate is from Ptuj and the chape from Vindonissa. Made by Erik Konig (Lechtl)

Here is a pic of the 2nd gladius I ever made. Its forged from a piece of old spring rod I found in a junk pile. Its somewhat based on a Fulham style blade, and the grip is American walnut of my own design.

This is the gladius I currently own. The sword itself was made by Joe Piela several years ago, and the scabbard is made by Len Morgan. The sword has been changed alot since Joe first made it. I have ground nearly .5 pound from the blade, and reshaped the point from rounded to the more correct straight shape. I also changed the grip from a wooden one to a bone grip.

No, I had it made. I didn't want the brass at the end of the guard, it should have been inlaid, but thats the only way he did it.

I had Bola wood used and of course the artwork is mine.
