For sale, a stout example of an 1831 gladius. This sword was issued to most infantry soldiers as a weapon to replace the briquet sabre, but also an everyday tool to build entrenchments or cut wood. for this reason, it sports a rather impressive leaf blade. It is marked to a maker I have not been able to identify yet, and dated to 1832. It is in great shape, very solid with no twist or bend, comes without a scabbard.
Please contact me if you are interested or have any questions.
