The Sica is a curved type of sword used by Thraex gladiators.


The sica is less of a simple thrusting and slashing sword (like the gladius), but is instead more of a unique and "tactical" weapon. Forged from iron, the sica's blade - typically 12" to 18" long - bends into a forward curve. It has a sharp point down to the turn of the curve, while the rest of the blade is blunted for a rougher gripping edge. This allows the curved end to be used to hook the weapon or shield of an opponent and pull them away, creating an opening to strike.
