Pugio Damascus Steel Dagger
During the Roman Empire, legionaries were issued a pugio (from the Latin pugno, or “fight”), a double-edged thrusting dagger inspired by Iberian daggers and short swords. Like the gladius—a legionarie's most used weapon—the pugio was used predominately as an extreme close-quarters combat weapon, and was the Roman soldier's last line of defense.
The Pugio Damascus Dagger is a work of art in both form and function. The Damascus twist pattern and the inlaid stag antler handle create a visually appealing harmony. Finished with an extremely sharp double edge, this modified dagger even includes a full grain, hand stitched leather sheath for comfortable carrying.
