Great product - not so great customer service. October 14, 2017
Reviewer: Cody McMillen from Cedar Hill, TX United States  
I rate this Montante trainer 5 out of 5 stars, I love it!

Training with it is a joy, it's sturdy and feels great in the hand. It's quite heavy, but train with this long enough and it won't be. I love the way it looks and the blue cord wrap Purpleheart made for the grip is phenomenal.
Another amazing product from Purpleheart Armoury.

HOWEVER...

I have no issue waiting a long time for a package, I am patient, but what I do find a problem with is a company not doing what they say they would do.

I am based in the U.S. and Hurricane Harvey seemed to interfere with the delivery of my package(as well as countless others I'm sure). This I understand, events sometimes happen that are out of our control,
but a company can control how they respond to that.

In short, If my order was delayed or destroyed by Harvey, I'd rather have been told up front, instead of sending several emails asking why my order was still processing 2 months later.

Synthetic Montante June 20, 2017
Reviewer: Gavin Lawson from Harrisonburg, VA United States  
I've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new montante and I was NOT disappointed.  It's a thing of beauty!  The sword is perfectly balanced and I love the steel guard.  As with everything I've bought from Purpleheart I'd recommend this to anyone interested in a high-quality montante trainer.

Synthetic Montante with Steel Guard May 31, 2017
Reviewer: Justin  
This trainer was a great purchase and I quite frankly am in love with my montante so here's my brief review on it.

Cons:
-he blade wasn't perfectly straight when I opened it. This is fixable but, worth mentioning.
-The steel guard is absolutely worth the extra money, however it is a tad sharp/rough around the edges.
-This trainer has a lot of heft and hits like a truck, not recommended for sparring even with protective gear.

Pros:
-This weapon is GORGEOUS, especially with the Steel guard and Pommel.
-It handles beautifully and feels great in the hands.
-The threaded grip looks great and feels great, no slip.
-ITS HUUUGE. Seriously, I love greatswords, this being my first purchase, I'm ecstatic with it's sheer size, makes me feel so cool walking around with it, even though I probably look like a dweeb.
-With care, it will last a loooong time.

I fully intend to purchase more trainers when my budget allows it, the quality of the Steel Guard Montante convince me.

If only young me could see me now May 9, 2017
Reviewer: Emilio Singh from Pretoria, Gauteng South Africa  
When I was younger, I never quite imagined I would one day own a sword like this.

Thanks to the lovely people of purpleheart armoury, I'm able to say I can.

Their service was impeccable, probably the best I've had online, and the very fact that they were willing to ship to South Africa is marvelous.

The weapon itself is robust without being cumbersome. It has a great level of hand protection with the steel guard and it's easily removable for transport.

The weapon feels right to me. It has the right amount of blade presence without being overly heavy.

I would definitely recommend this product or this company for your hema needs.

nicer than I'd hoped February 6, 2017
Reviewer: Donald L. from KS, United States  
Arrived in good time. Maybe a 5 mm bend along entire blade to one side that is lessening as I leave it propped onto opposite side. For the length this is very forgivable and doesn't affect it one bit. Good weight and proportions, the steel cross was nicer than I'd expected. I might consider some light filing (on guard) to round some edges that contact the lead hand in the future- a ten minute task at most.

Works well in motion and feels good. I am glad I purchased this rather than risk my expensive greatsword sharps! Quite happy with this and all previous Purpleheart training tools I own.
