The Roman Legions were professional soldiers and most Roman Legionaries from as early as 9 BC and onwards wore the 'lorica segmentata' body armour made of strips of iron as well as a steel helmet. The Lorica Segmentata is constructured from 1.6mm low carbon steel - suitable for all but the most intense forms of re-enactment combat.
The Gladius is made from high carbon steel and has dulled edges. It also has a sharp point that needs to be blunted if it is to be used for re-enactment combat.
