Roman Pugio Dagger & Matching Sheath. The wood hilt of this Roman dagger is paired with a fully tempered 1055 high carbon steel blade.
Comes with a wood scabbard covered in leather with brass parts. The remains of ancient artifacts that are preserved in the British Museum are the basis for this re-creation of a Roman Pugio. Its shape and dimensions make it very similar to a Spartan short sword: leaf-shaped, double-edged blade with an acute point. However, ancient ergonomics went into the grip.
It is shaped to fit comfortably in a warrior's hand. A Roman Pugio was especially effective in close combat.
Its scabbard is made of wood covered in leather with a brass mount and chape. Total length: 49.5 cm. Blade thickness (base): 4.8 mm. Blade width (base): 4.5 cm.
