The latest and perhaps greatest of the Deepeeka Sword offerrings is the AH2005 Gladius of Mainz. Sword is a beautiful hardwood and bone handled masterpiece with mainz style wasp waisted blade, slighly less wasping than the older AH4209. The wood furniture is more bulbous, and the bone handle is an excellently styled round bone with finger grooves. Brass finial on top completed the pommel. The scabbard is simply gorgeous brass and steel (with black leather backing). Perhaps the best off the shelf sword yet (though Deepeeka has more coming!!). Closeup pics coming next week!!
