A beautiful pugio with scabbard by Windlass Steelcrafts, based on an original in the British Museum. The pugio was a dagger that Roman legionaries used for close combat. These types of Roman daggers were not usually worn by civilians, but traders and other travelers did carry a pugio on the road. In this way they could protect themselves against barbarians on the edges of the Roman Empire or against robbers. This pugio has a wooden grip and the scabbard is decorated with brass fittings and rings to hang it on your belt. The blade is made of tempered 1055 carbon steel with a hardness of 48-52 HRC. Perfect for reenactment of a Roman legionary, a Roman costume or for the collector of Roman weapons. When you blunten the pugio, it is suitable for reenactment battles.
