The Roman army chose the Gladius as its principal sidearm because it was practical and efficient and excelled in most close combat situations. The early Gladius - The Maintz Pattern, was wasp waisted with a long point that combined cutting power and stabbing ability in one easily accessible weapon.
Originals were excavated from the ruins of Pompeii. One can see examples in H. Russell Robinson's book What The Soldiers Wore On Hadrian's Wall.
This Gladius, in the early Maintz pattern has a faux ivory grip with ornate brass applique on the scabbard.
WINDLASS STEELCRAFTS: The seeds of Windlass Steelcrafts were sown by a young motivated Indian named Ved Prakash Windlass in the year 1941 when he started a small undertaking to supply 'khukris' to the British Gurkha regiment in the pre independent era of the Indian history.
Windlass Steelcrafts was selected by the famed British Gurkha Regiments to build their critical and unique combat knife, the kukri, and this British government contract has continued uninterrupted for many years, a record which continues to grow with each passing year.
Windlass products are unique, because they are fully functional and usable. Their selection of edged weapons will always cut, behave and feel like the originals.
