Product Description

During the Roman Empire, legionaries were issued a Pugio (from the Latin Pugnō, or “fight”), a double edged thrusting dagger. The pugio was most notably used by Sempronius Densus, a retired legionary working as a Roman Imperial Guard in 69 AD. As an army of over 1,000 mutinous Roman soldiers marched to storm the palace and execute the Emperor, Densus stood alone to defend. To show that he wasn't afraid of these traitors he dropped his cudgel (large whacking mallet) and pulled out his Pugio Dagger. He warned them to stop but seeing he was alone, they pressed forward. He, alone with his Pugio Dagger, slaughtered hundreds until he was eventually overcome and killed.

This Pugio Damascus Dagger is named in honor of his bravery. It is a work of art in both form and function. The Damascus twist pattern and the inlaid Stag antler handle create a visually appealing harmony. As a tool, the extremely sharp double edge on this modified dagger and solid hand will make the most finicky blade connoisseur salivate.
