I really, really like that. I have no idea how historically accurate it is but most gladii we see are festooned with brass and other stuff, tons of decorative gew gaws which I simply don't care for. This looks like a purpose made soldiers weapon. If it's not accurate, it ought to be.
Well, it's clearly not a messer, a longsword, a rapier, etc... I understand how it isn't historically accurate, but when you have to decide what it looks like the most, I'd have to agree it's a gladius.
I know both Fallen and Rhema can, and have, make better and more historic examples, but I've got to admit, I actually like this version from Condor. I dislike the name-stamp, though, but there's something utilitarian about the look of it I like. I won't be buying it...I might have about $75 worth of like for it, but no where near $175 worth of like!

Scott: My work has been very quiet lately. Things will pick up when the landslide is cleared away though.

RufusScorpius: My work picked up so I have LESS time for fun stuff. Shoot, I had to go all the way to Germany just so I could spar a little bit.

christain: My work will be picking up soon with more hours...so, more money. I'll eventually be adding a couple of swords and a helmet or two. Heck...I've still got projects to finish before I buy anything else.
