This sword is for a "FREE GIVEAWAY" I did three years ago. The "WINNER" was Draco Gregorian Saliens from South Australia. With everything that has been going on in my life, family, ministry and trying to start a business, this sword got caught up in the fray.
It was finally completed February 10, 2020. The original giveaway was for a sword I would create for the winner. They would choose the type of blade, but I would make a "Basic Issue Legionary Gladius." Because of my ongoing delays, I upgraded a few things. The inlaid brass guard plate now bears the winner's legion with the legion insignia. I upgraded the guard with a hand carved guard of the Vindonissa style flower pattern. The guard and pommel are hand carved Walnut. The grip was upgraded to a beautiful piece of Italian Olive Wood in a 6 sided chiseled grip. The pommel finial cap is bronze with a brass washer and peened.
