5 of 5 Used this for sparring in my hema group March 15, 2019
Reviewer: Dale Dotson from Brentwood, TN United States  
Me and my friends have a hema group and this trainer would be intresting to use.... we needed a thrusting trainer, it worked very and has good weight especially with the metal bit they added to the bottom of the handle. My biggest surprise was how good the guard was.

5 of 5 Outstanding side sword training tool August 31, 2018
Reviewer: Tom Augenthaler (Texas Armizare) from Houston, TX United States  
Our club has been looking for a low cost but durable side sword training tool for quite a while.  Purpleheart came to the rescue with this plastic alternative to more expensive options including wood, nylon and of course steel.  Now while nothing competes with steel, these plastic wasters are terrific.  They are hardy, nicely weighted and low cost.  I can't recommend this tool enough.  We will likely be being more as our side sword curriculum grows.  I've yet to find a better tool as affordably priced.

5 of 5 Quite Possibly the Perfect Sword December 8, 2017
Reviewer: Nicholas Tockert from LaPorte, IN United States  
I commissioned this sword for use in the Historical Fencing Guild.  Christian's build is balanced, responsive, and elegant.  The Italian Sidesword Tactical Trainer is the sword that will be featured in my upcoming YouTube instructional series based on my manual, The Simple Sword.
The best value for your money on the market.
