I agree with the compliments and also the question. Please tell us more about your pugio.

Thanx Both of you!

I bought it from a company in Germany called Battle Merchant! Here is a link to their site! http://www.battlemerchant.com/

To find the Pugio you klick on Greischen unt Römishen in the left menu and then it is listed as
0209117522 SAY/SDK/1175 Pugio Titelbergstil

It cost me under 120 evro (around $160) togehter with a gladius and this includes shipping. Not bad at al!

All Pugios I've seen have that distinctive bulge in the middle of the handle. How does it feel in the hand, with extra attention paid to the bulge?

It actually feel fine! The bulge fits perfectly into the pit you have in the middle of the palm. Look at your palm in your half closed hand and you will see how it fits!

I will do some corrections to it though! There is a thread on the corrections that should be on RAT
( http://www.romanarmy.com/rat/viewtopic.php?t=14663 )!

The sword is a weapon for killing, the art of the sword is the art of killing. No matter what fancy words you use or what titles you put to
it that is the only truth.

They have blunts for reenactment fighting and semisharps for hiphanging;). They have no roman swords that can be used in training! The blunt´s they sell is medieval and Viking!

You can always mail them! They speak English and German and SWEDISH Eek! Eek! !

One should be arriving at my place any day now....
