Borg warner Posted April 9, 2022 Share Posted April 9, 2022 Not exactly a Sword, actually. it's a Cold Steel Gladius "Machete" that is much more like a Roman short sword than it is a machete. I had one years ago but gave it to my nephew and tehn later decided I liked it so much I wanted to get another one for my self. I have one other sword, a Samurai sword and I used to take lessons that were a combination of Kendo (sword fighting) and Bojitsu (staff fighting) and we learned the moves to use with the short staff to counter the sword. I have a nice modern Katana with a sturdy but plain handle but with an excellent steel blade that takes a razor sharp edge. It cost about 200 dollars. I ordered the Cold steel Gladius almost a year ago in August 2021 and unfortunately Cold steel was back ordered on a lot of their machetes which I was told by a friend at a local gun shop who I bought my original one from, came from South Africa. I ordered my newest one from a place called KnifeCenter, and it was less that what Cold steel charged but with shipping about the same, and after I placed my order they sent me an email and said that it was back-ordered from Cold steel and I could either get a refund or wait until cold steel had them again and that they would send me an email every two weeks updating me as to the status and would notify me when my order was shipped. Recently I was tired of waiting and almost canceled teh order but just this morning got an email that my order had shipped USPS and provided me with a tracking number. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
