The Augst, Germany Gladius were rather well-made composite blades basically a carbon steel core sandwiched between two outer low-carbon iron strips; the idea being that less of the rarer and thus more costly steel is necessary to make a blade and every time it is sharpened, the edge remains steel.  Not only was the core and edge steel, but the blade had been heat treated- hardened and then sufficiently tempered to leave a partly martensite edge- the hardest crystalline form of steel.
