UGG3: Legion XIV Elite
The Legion XIV Elite is currently the largest knife in the USGladius line measuring 14" in length overall. USGladius Knives are based on the design of the Roman Gladius (short sword), the standard arm of the Roman Legions, proven on ancient battlefields and the gladiatorial spectacles of the arena for over 400 years. The unique design not only provides excellent balance, from a functional standpoint, but an aesthetic beauty as well, uncommon in a standard tactical knife. The Legion Elite XIV comes with a double edged full tang titanium-coated stainless steel blade. This knife features removable handle scales for reduced weight, easy cleaning, throwing, survival applications or use with a lanyard. USGladius is destined to become a classic.
