Nothing Says Merry Christmas Like...


So I have a cousin who's really into Roman history. For years I've given him books about ancient Rome. This year I had planned to give him something different, a Cold Steel training Gladius. This is a practice sword made of very tough plastic in the same size as a real Roman short sword. Cold steel actually makes a wide variety of practice weapons out of this hard, durable material. (They also have a very nice real Scottish Dirk I have my eye on for after the Holidays.) Think of them as high tech bokens. Anyway, when I got it out of the box I was so taken with it that I decided to keep it. Merry Christmas to me. My cousin will be fine with another book...
