We have "Gladiator," (the Oscar-winning, epic movie by director Ridley Scott) to thank for this exciting, original licensed gladius with an eagle head.

Our Eagle Head Gladius as seen in Gladiator is a classic short sword with a highly ornamental grip in natural wood and wood painted in black and gold. Three golden eagle heads – one at the top of the pommel and two on the hand guard – add an eye-catching accent. The golden edge of the hand guard is edged in brass stamped with the letters "SPQR" (Senātus Populusque Rōmānus = The senate and people of Rome), which refers to the government of the ancient Roman Republic. And an emblem featuring an eagle in a ring borne by two winged horses also decorates the hand guard. Its weight makes the original, licensed Gladiator Eagle Head Gladius an effective cutting sword and the pointed blade can also deliver precise thrusts. All in all, a classic short sword that will earn you a lot of respect in the arena. An attractive wall mount for displaying this gladius short sword is included.
