The Roman Scissor was a distinctive bladed weapon wielded by a class of Gladiator known as the Scissor. It was one of the Close-Range weapons of the Gladiator.
The Scissor consisted of a crescent-shaped blade on the end of a long, metal tube that was worn over the forearm. A handle inside the tube allowed the user to maintain a hold on the weapon in the heat of battle.
The Scissor was a versatile weapon, capable of slashing, stabbing, and blocking opponent's blows. The shape of the blade was such that even slight contact could inflict a serious wound.
