4 of 5 Good, Solid Messer September 23, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Virginia, United States  
Overall, a very solid messer. Great value for the price point. Having used it some times in sparring, the blade holds up very well. Some minor nicks happened, though it's to be expected and they were easily removed with a little sanding. The handle is large enough to comfortably grip it even while wearing heavy gloves. The balance point is noticeably a bit closer to the handle then other messer's I've handled, though it handles pretty well still. It's more a difference than a plus or minus.

The only thing that stops me from giving it a full 5 stars is the cross-guard and nagel. While they do the job of protecting your hands, the metal is quite softer and develops gouges that require frequent sanding to keep out burrs and sharp points.

5 of 5 VB Messer September 16, 2019
Reviewer: Bruce Rawitch from Stilwell, KS United States  
Just bought the new VB steel messer trainer.  I have to say I am very impressed with the quality and handling of this weapon, every VB steel trainer that has been puchased by my club had met and exceeded our expectations.  Service from Purpleheart was exceptional as always.

4 of 5 Pretty messy. February 21, 2019
Reviewer: Peter Weisinger from Salmon Arm, BC Canada  
So far so good. i was worried that the lack of a metal knopf would leave it unbalanced, but this is not the case at all - the length and heft of the handle gives it good balance, and a small person could even get two hands on this. It leaves lots of room when using with a glove to perform techniques that use the knopf. The blade did bend a bit the first time I thrusted agressively, but I could bend it back pretty easily. I think this is to be expected from this kind of steel though. The edges of the blade come pretty squared off, so after the first few times I used it, it got several nicks. This can easily be solved by rounding it off with a little sandpaper. Overall for the price, this is an awesome Messer.
