5 of 5 Perfect for my purposes April 3, 2023
Reviewer: O. Fisher  
I picked two of these up as trainers for a traditional Greek dagger dance - an acquaintance of mine wants to learn. He tells me they're just the right size, shape, and weight to stand in for a Pontian weapon, so I'm happy on that front! The daggers have a lovely weight and balance to them; they almost want to be tossed in the hand. They seem very close in shape to ancient Mycenean weapons as well; the lion hunt dagger from the Athens museum comes to mind.

Only thing is, I'd be careful about sparring with full force with these. They're quite stiff as mentioned in the description, and the dagger point is rather acute.

4 of 5 A good dagger December 26, 2018
Reviewer: Ryan K. from Pittsburgh, PA United States  
Expect the same great quality from Purpleheart. The mycenaean dagger is a fair length longer than it looks in the photos. Any longer and it might be mistaken for a short sword, not a bad thing though. The handle is the thinnest of any of the basic trainers, dagger or otherwise. Anyone with larger hands or longer fingers like myself may have trouble while practicing with it. Still a great training tool and fun to play around with.

4 of 5 Worth Getting September 9, 2018
Reviewer: Matt from Illinois  
A nice dagger, and close to the original. My only complaint is the narrow grip - I've had this thing fly out of my glove couple of times, and my oversized gorilla hands have trouble keeping it stable.
If a Naue II were released, I'd get that too - there aren't enough bronze age trainers on the market.

5 of 5 Highly Accurate July 28, 2018
Reviewer: Ahmad F.  
I got this as a partying dagger of sorts,and found it to be a delightful addition to my collection. The handle was a little skinnier than I expected, but by no means did it negatively impact the handling of the trainer. A good buy for anyone interested in ancient Greek warfare.
