The coating is actually kind of nice. The finish on my Bosworth has this sort of black marble look to it that's pretty cool. Everything being super shiny and mirror finished gets stale after awhile, I'm all for blade polishes with different tones hence why I like pattern welded, folded and Japanese stuff so much
Plus, everything about this gladius just makes it look like a sword belonging to the Centurion of Doom lol. Such a cool piece
Zabazagobo, Windlass should get on that right away. I looked on the link to see what the hilt material is for the Battlecry Gladius, but it didn't say. I just assumed it was wooden, similar to their Pompei model. I don't know if anyone here has owned or reviewed the Battlecry one yet. Ah well, I still think that white hilt would look great with the rest of the sword being blackened.
I wonder if it's possible that the blade is from the Hoplite model?
Nah. It's different in both size and shape.

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.
