The Pugio -and who had it and for what purpose?
Our Pugio is a wooden replica of a historical Roman military dagger, secured in a fitting leather sheath which was carried at the belt of the Roman warrior. These were the famous legionnaires, in the first place - members of the legions who subdued the most part of known Europe and some parts of Asia for Rome. Subsequently they were stationed along the borders of that vast empire.
Besides, you could mention the many gladiators who fought for entertainment of the public in one of the many arenas scattered over the Mediterranean region. Some data about the Roman leather sheath for the dagger:
- overall length 34 centimeters
- accompanied by belt cord for fixation at the belt
This is where the legionnaires and gladiators hid their Pugio in
As no weapon is permanently in use but needs some protection from wheather, and because you would not like to get cut unintentionally, you needed a safe place where to keep it on you. The solution was this Roman leather sheath, as our replica crafted from genuine leather and sewn by hand just like the original. You may either bind the sheath (with the dagger inside) around your waist, for example on your Roman tunic, or you attach it safely on your military belt by help of its belt cord.
Why you should want to have the Roman leather sheath added to your equipment
When you are disguising yourself as a true legionnaire or gladiator arena fighter at occasions like carnival or masquerade events, motive parties or for re-enactments of antique life or battle, you would have to be considered as incomplete without the carrying device for your Pugio. The style of our Roman leather sheath made of real leather fits perfectly a picture of historical accuracy you could possibly ask for, not only by looking dishful, but also by its supreme workmanship.
Don’t wait until it is sold out and secure one of these genuine looking replicas of the sought after Roman leather sheaths for your Pugio.
