Basic Rudis with Custom Engraving July 31, 2017
Reviewer: Scott Walton from Guelph, ON Canada  
The Rudis is a motivational item for a boys hockey team, the boys will be more than impressed with the cool "sword" and unique "player of the game" symbol. Rudis was very well built and did justice to the image and quality promised.  I would trust Purpleheart Armoury with other projects.  Well done, great communication throughout and shipping was painless to Canada.

Amazing Work July 28, 2017
Reviewer: Nathan Davis from Perrysburg, OH United States  
Amazing work on three Rudis that I used for an end of Tour gift for my team. Purple heart Armoury were extremely helpful. Called to ensure that the package would get to Kuwait with no problem. Highly recommend!!

Extremely customer service orientated July 25, 2017
Reviewer: SGM William J Wright Jr from Pawcatuck, CT United States  
They have been providing me with multiple wooden swords for retirements this past year. They have never made a mistake on the swords and they have always arrived on time (even when I wait till the last minute). I can only say great things about them and the way they conduct themselves.

Absolutely perfect July 15, 2017
Reviewer: Jennifer Gebert from Tarrawa Terrace, NC United States  
The process of choosing a rudis, identifying specifics and submitting our units graphics was done in a couple of hours. In less then a week we had our order in ample time for the scheduled going away, for which the rudis was intended.
