Description Sizing
Wider blade Sabre made for Purpleheart Armoury by VB in Hungary.

Mostly designed for a hilt that large SPES gloves can fit into for maximum hand protection. The D-hilt or Stirup guard is based on a couple designs like the 1796/1803 light cavalry saber, or an Austria-Hungarian sabre also has a similar hilt.

The blade has a nice deep curve, more than our other wider military sabre.

V5 - We have done lots of prototypes over the last year to get this right.

See Sizing tab for more information.
- Heat treated guard
- strong flexible blade.

4 of 5 Great Value, but heavier/stiffer than listed January 16, 2023
Reviewer: Zachary Rabalais from Georgia  
Overall this saber is a great value for the money like most of the VB swords.  I gave it 4 out 5 because it was a lot heavier than the listed weight which would technically exclude it from a lot of tournaments that have a 900g weight limit on saber requirements. It also tested stiffer on the flex than listed by a little more than 6lbs so not insignificant...I'd definitely call it a stiff blade, not medium.  Overall it is definitely worth the money, but falls more into the realm of something that you'll have to use control to spar with vs something lighter with more flex like i was expecting. Not something I'd want a beginner sparring with, but someone with some experience should be fine with it.

5 of 5 Well balanced sabre. October 9, 2022
Reviewer: Christopher Nguyen from Palm Coast, FL United States  
A great option if you practice British Military Sabre!  The sword is balanced well in the hand and very durable.  The blade is relatively stiff, but still flexes enough to be safe during a thrust.  All of the swords I purchased from VB have been quality weapons.
