This is our less expensive version of the Rudis. For a better quality Rudis, go to http://www.swordsofhonor.com/mrl600774.html.

A Rudis was a gift to a gladiator for a special achievement. This signified his release from a slave to a free man. These wooden swords were also used by Gladiators for training. If he survived the arena and lived long enough to retire a symbolic wooden gladius (Rudis) was awarded as a token of discharge and freedom.

Would be perfect as a gift to anyone in the military or retired military or as gift of academic accomplishment. Could also be engraved with up to 25 characters.

Customer Testimonials

I ordered a Zatoichi Samurai Sword and when it arrived i noticed the box had been damaged. After opening it, I found out that the sword had a 'ding' in it and was slightly bent. I called Swords of Honor and they immediately issued a call tag for UPS to come pick it up and sent me a new one (which arrived perfectly).
