Roman Daggers

Many Roman soldiers carried historical blades called pugio. Pugio daggers had very short but wide leaf-type blades that extended about 7 to 11 inches long. We carry an excellent selection of these Roman daggers, many of which are replicas of weapons that have been preserved in remarkably good condition in museums. The Roman pugio was used for stabbing and thrusting when fighting in close quarters with the enemy. When legionnaires were in close formation with an enemy, swords or spears could become impractical, yet these kinds of Roman knives could still be wielded, which is why they were the basic part of the Roman army gear. Our Roman daggers and pugio replicas make fantastic collectible blades and reenactment weapons for history buffs.
