BRASS HILT GLADIATOR DOLCH Image of AH6251 Gladiator Dolch with Brass Hilt by DeepeekaAH6251 by Deepeeka
Perfectly suited to the brutal close combat of the Gladiator arenas, short stabbing swords like this rugged bone hilt dolch were used by many Roman Gladiators. Features an unsharpened 12 3/4 inch carbon steel blade and a solid brass hilt with cup shaped guard. There is no scabbard available for this model as Gladiator weapons were simply carried into the arena.
The Roman Gladiator
A Gladiator (Latin: gladiator, "swordsman", from gladius, "sword") was an armed combatant who entertained audiences in the Roman Republic and Roman Empire in violent confrontations with other gladiators, wild animals, and condemned criminals. Some gladiators were volunteers who risked their legal and social standing and their lives by appearing in the arena.
The origins of Gladiator Weapons introduced in these combats were not of only Romans design, but also gathered from the nations that they conquered. The Roman crowd of spectators in the Coliseum enjoyed being reminded of Roman conquests and loved any gladiatorial fights that provided some sort of novelty. There were therefore approximately 30 different types of gladiator who specialized in using specific weapons, armor and shields.
