ROMAN SPATHA II
The Spatha was used around the 2nd-3rd century A.D. by the Roman Cavalry and has a longer blade than the older design the Gladius used by the Legionaries. It has two types of blade tip – one is triangular and the other rounded.

Roman Spatha II style handle is similar to the Pompeii Gladius but the blade is slimmer and longer. Folded steel designated 1060 and 9250 was used to form the blade. The 25-3/4” blade is 1-3/8” wide at the base and tapers to slightly less than inch near the triangular tip. It has a thick blade measuring 5/16” at the base and tapers to towards the point. The sword has a very good balance for its weight.

The handle is made up of the grip, guard and pommel. An aged Yakal wood is used on the grip with octagonal cross section. Flanking the grip is the guard and pommel made of Makassar ebony giving it a nice contrast. A brass finial is attached to the blade tang above the pommel.

The scabbard is an exotic brown hardwood called Wenge with contrasting dark brown and black streaks. A belt hanger is attached near the top made of black dyed wood and strapped to the scabbard. Additional black wrap is used near the top opening to minimize splitting at that area. Blade has a bright polished finish. Limited supply.

BLADE: 25-3/4” long, 1-3/8” wide, 5/16” thick, 1060 & 9250 steels used, tempered on the edge. 
BALANCE POINT: 6-1/2” from the guard. 
HANDLE: grip 3-5/8”, total length 6-1/2” including guard and pommel. 
SCABBARD: 27” long and 2” wide.
WEIGHT: 1.86 lbs. without scabbard
