Exactly What I Expected June 8, 2017
Reviewer: Keaton Cates  
The swords took a while to get to me but I don't imagine they are really kept in stock. They are pretty good for solo drills but I wouldn't recommend it for sparring unless you have good hand protection (trust me). It's cheap though which is great and for the price it is worth it.

Russian Shashka Trainer May 13, 2017
Reviewer: John Gray from Newark, DE United States  
This is without a doubt an excellent trainer for the price. It's light, it handles well, and its extremely durable. After about two sparring sessions and predicted many more to come it has done an excellent job of representing what a shashka should be like. As a note this is the first time I've ever used a sword trainer with nothing in the way of a guard but you learn pretty fast to move in a way that doesn't lead to strikes to the hand. My only gripe is that as you use it the cord grip tends to compress and leads to the the grip bunching near the pommel and guard.

tldr: It's light, durable, good handling, and doesn't break the bank.
