Rudis - Best Gift Ever October 19, 2017
Reviewer: Ken from Springfield , VA United States  
I recently ordered a Rudis as a retirement gift for a coworker and it was the perfect choice. Everyone who saw it said they wanted one when they retire.The workmanship and quality were top notch. From ordering to design proofing the process was quick and easy. I highly recommend Purpleheart Armoury

Product and Service Review October 18, 2017
Reviewer: Charlie Shin from Grafenwoehr, Germany  
The Rudis and engraving was a perfect gift that we presented to a long time co-worker.

Purpleheart Armoury provided fast and friendly customer service. The package arrived into Germany in less than a week and we were fortunate to be able to present our gift before our colleague departed.

Great team with reliable and quality service!

Easiest process of ordering a custom made gift October 17, 2017
Reviewer: Joshua Sinder from Ruston, WA United States  
The Rudis came in looking exactly how I wanted.  I've done a lot of work with ordering custom gifts for people and this was by far the easiest process I ever experienced.  They were SUPER fast. I got a response the next day with three options for how the inscription and logo could look, which made the process that much simpler.
