5 of 5 Hungarian Sabre February 11, 2021
Reviewer: Pablo Barrera from Tlalnepantla, Estado de México Mexico  
Its a great weapon. it arrived less than 10 days after my purchase and the purple heart team attend every question i have about the process and the details on the weapon. they also recommend other kind of equipment that will match the best with your needs and preferences. it was a great choice for me.

4 of 5 Awesome saber, needs a stronger knuckle bow November 13, 2020
Reviewer: Christopher Chill from Clearwater, FL United States  
I love this saber. But the knuckle bow needs a little help. Took a few blows from my other saber, one hard hit bent the bow inward. I bent it back out later, but how easily it bent worries me.
Blade’s a bit stiff (significantly stiffer than the Ensifer), but not so stiff as to be overly concerned. Only slightly heavier than the Ensifer, but neither saber hits any harder than arming or sideswords. Obviously, you should be wearing gear.
I really love the perfectly sized grip and pronounced blade curve of this saber. It’s comfortable with and without (Heavy) gloves. Viktor must know that bears aren't the only ones with big paws. And the strong curve of the blade was exactly what I wanted for a Hungarian/Polish style saber.
I am not even bothered by the stiffness, and neither were my club mates. The Only thing that could be better, IMHO, is the knuckle bow. If the guard/knuckle bow was beefed up, while still accommodating heavy gloves, this would be a 5-star sword all day.

4 of 5 Fun saber with a couple of concerns May 9, 2020
Reviewer: Austin from Richmond, VA United States  
This saber is pretty great for the price. A little stiff so that worries me at times so keep in mind to keep control of thrusts. Also hits a little hard so there is a level of control needed for safe sparring. Definitely recommend only fencers wearing full kit and proper arm protection to fence with it. It's great conditioning for your arms. The grip could do a bit better but not terrible so some grip tape will add to a better grip. Otherwise it's a pretty solid piece and a lot of fun parrying for days.
