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!
treeslicer: You have to admit, it's a simple and all-purpose pejorative; "Go semprini yourself, you semprini-faced sack of semprini!!" Obviously in tune with the direction that linguistic degeneracy is heading in.

AndiTheBarvarian: 100 years in the future I see people wondering at what the origin of that dirty and offending "s"-word was...

MOK: It is! I'll grant that it may be hard to tell sometimes because, of course, the filter replaces all naughty words with "semprini".

demented: Semprini should be censored too at this point

RufusScorpius: Ok guys. Please use the word "semprini" in it's correct context or I will have to report you to the moderators. A semprini is not a joke, so please use it responsibly.
