4 of 5 Excellent rapier, great customer service November 14, 2019
Reviewer: Romana Shemayev from Monona, WI United States  
First impressions after the assembly and a few fights: An excellent rapier for the money - feels sturdy, handles reasonably well, easy to assemble and disassemble, basic but beautiful.  It is more tip-heavy than I would have liked (especially with an added blunt required by safety regulations in SCA, etc.), however not unmanageable.  As always, great customer service from the Purpleheart Armory team!

5 of 5 Great rapier for an awesome price July 30, 2019
Reviewer: Derek Gilboe from Houston, TX United States  
This is the first rapier I've purchased and after looking at the multitude of options from other armories, it was difficult to decide what I really needed. Then I came across this wonderful cup rapier and made the trek up to Purpleheart Armory (PHA) for this (IN STOCK) rapier. The rapier impressed many in my school for its quality and price! It has more flex than some rapiers but remains sufficiently rigid for everything I am doing so far. The weight is perfect for me and lighter than some of the more elegant (aka expensive) rapiers yet equally effective in all scenarios. Not to mention the Purpleheart Armory logo stamped near the hilt! This is a rapier I would definitely recommend to anyone - it has all of the quality of a rapier 2-3 times the price in a nice simple yet effective design. PHA was helpful as well, taking time to answer questions - even the rather dumb ones I came up with. What more can you ask for than a quality weapon from an armory with great service!

4 of 5 VB Rapier May 3, 2019
Reviewer: O from New York  
This is one of the finest rapiers I've ever held. The flex is perfect for SCA EK rapier rules and it's high quality enough for HEMA. It's well balanced and it has a light weight for its size, I have a Zen Warrior cup hilt that's 3 inches shorter but still heavier. While I appreciate the simplicity of the design, it would be neat to see a fancier embossed, perforated or even a "Taza" style cup for a bit more money. Seeing as how it was already made, it shipped fast. Similarly high quality weapons may have you waiting weeks while they build them... I would highly recommend these to all those who do rapier, especially Destreza.
