The Romans are known to have borrowed ideas on weapons of their
enemies. Initially they used weapons of Etruscan and Greek style or,
when confronted with the Celts, adopted their equipment. To defeat the
Carthaginians built a fleet based on the Carthaginian model. Once a
weapon is adopted it was standard.

The weapons changed over the history of Rome, although its equipment and its use were never individual.
Almost all Roman swords and daggers were double-edged, and could be used for both cutting and threading.
The
pugio was a small dagger used by the ancient Roman soldiers possibly as
an auxiliary weapon. Like other equipment of the Legionnaires, the
dagger had a series of changes throughout I century. Generally had a
long blade and leaf-shaped, between 18 and 28 centimeters long and 5
centimeters or more across. It was ideal for threading; a good rush can
pierce a chainmail weapon.
