Iím doing it .. first I was engaged in the reconstruction of the 5th century AD in Ireland. For that period, a weapon is either gladius or spath. I want to order a training layout from our blacksmiths. But to show a person a general picture - this is not enough, you need some kind of drawing, dimensions. Does anyone who reads a drawing for a gladius or spath have enough for work? Thank you in advance.

So you're looking for someone to do a technical drawing of a sword, so you can give it to the smith to make sure he knows exactly what you want, correct?

Suddenly someone has such a more or less clear picture ...

Well, I have done things like that before, and have plenty of time on my hands right now. Let's do this. Happy

Do you already have a good idea of what you're looking for? Some specific historical weapon you want to reproduce, or a style and measurements you would prefer?
