    Gents, looking for a modern take / version of a Gladius (not the coldsteel machete) that you could use in the field (so not a display piece). Please sound off!

    Thanks!

    Well, you could try the Condor Tool & Knife CTK1026-18.5HC Tactical Gladius Sword. It's not made of unbreakable super secret squirrel uber steel like the Busse but it will also only you around 200 dollars. I have no particular experience with that piece, but the Condor pieces I've seen have all been good values for the money.

    Albion sells bare blades, so if you enjoy the do-it-yourself route, you can make the handle look as tactical as ya want.
