    Best tools for sharpening & repair. I’ve managed to chip the tip of my gladius. Anything I can buy to repair that & sharp the blade?

    If it's a Busse Gladius, you can always send it to the shop and the Busse crew will fix it right up for you.

    A lot of the possibilities depend on the circumstances. Let's play blind man's bluff and twenty questions.

    1. Can you tell us more about your gladius?

    I'm so tempted to say " a week of penicillin, followed up by Viagra as needed", but am not going to go there. If this was a really cheap one then it was probably made for cos play or wall hanging and not much if any actual use. If it was made for use, then contact the maker & see what they are willing to do. If it was made for a wall hanger, then I'd get a file & re profile the tip
    & dump it on eBAY and chalk it up to experience. As to sharpening, if it is cheap even if you manage to get an edge, it's not likely to last for long. Gotta ask, how did you damage the tip?
