Blossfechten at it's most fun! March 23, 2017
Reviewer: Steven Faralli from Mobile, AL United States  
Can't recommend a pair of these weapons enough! The construction is sturdy, the handling fantastic, and yet they are small and light enough to take with you almost anywhere. I've been sparring with them nearly every day for the past week with my club mates, co-workers, and friends without any protective gear whatsoever, and had no issues at all (although I would recommend a mask if you're going for headshots). The layers of leather are plenty of padding to prevent serious injury (with reasonable control of course). The worst we suffered was slight bruising and it only takes a couple of hours of use to break said leather in, afterwards they loosen up to deaden a bit more impact than when they're right out of the box.

As always Purpleheart's service is the best in the industry. Buy a pair of these and you won't regret it for a second. They are incredibly safe for unarmored fencing and are a great warm-up as well as a serious training tool.

Awesome Sparring Weapon! February 24, 2017
Reviewer: Chad Herbert from Kelowna, BC Canada  
Love the Dussack!  Arrived just in time for my birthday bear-it!  Fought 45 matches, winning 40!  The sword caused many bruises in its new and stiff state! ;)

Fun addition to the armory November 28, 2016
Reviewer: Jorge A from San Antonio  
The construction and materials appear solid. Handling is light and lively, making them equally enjoyable for drills and free play.

An essential for the HEMAist. May 29, 2016
Reviewer: Cesar De La Vega from San Antonio, TX United States  
I actually started off with the synthetic versions, which are fantastic, but I turned around and bought two of these almost immediately after fighting with them. With great handling and dimension very much like those seen in the historical plates, these are fantastic weapons and help a fighter improve their timing, distance and reflexes.

The fact that they are leather improves the safety of un-armored fencing. A bit stiff at first, but as they loosen up over time and use, the leather deadens the blow against the body and makes un=armored fighting very safe and incredibly fun.

I would tell anybody to buy a set of these the next opportunity they get to purchase HEMA gear! Great job, Purple Heart!
