This is a finely crafted Morporkian gladius. The short blade is specifically designed to be used in short thrusting motions from behind a large shield. Despite its name, this isn't a brick in a sock, but an expertly balanced sword. It represents one of the pinnacles of Morporkian military achievement. It isn't intricately designed, going instead for a simplistic minimalist look. These weapons, when used in massed ranks, are terrifying to fight against.
The Morporkian gladius is about two and a half feet long and a couple of inches wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type sword.
