5 of 5 Very fun trainer December 22, 2021
Reviewer: Freddie from TX  
It is a little too large to be a dagger, and for a sword it is a bit short, but it is still lots of fun.
I did some warm up sparring against a messer and it worked very well. The guard provided some much appreciated protection without gloves.
I also used it with a rapier and it worked especially well as a compliment for the rapier,  mostly due to its large size.
The grip is the perfect size to fit Spes Heavies comfortably (it's not cramped at all) while also not having an insanely large handle.

4 of 5 its great but its BIG August 2, 2021
Reviewer: Stephen Kostes from Newtown, CT United States  
So i bought this cause I love bowie knives and I like to practice hatchet and long knife. And I did not realize just how large this blade is. Its more of a short saber than a bowie knife. That said its well made, very tough and agile, all the things I expect from this site. But its big. I don't have specific measurements but its longer than my hatchet trainer which is 19 3/4 inches. So keep that in mind. But its a great piece if you want a shorter saber or an in between piece.
