5 of 5 A great find. August 19, 2022
Reviewer: Aaron K. from Middle Tennessee  
This handles well and has a glorious curve to the blade. The edge is thick and well suited for sparring and the distal taper is observable. The flex of the blade is stiff, but less so than my CAS/Hanwei practical arming and norman swords. The thrusting tip is a bit thin for my tastes; it is not spatulated but simply flattened, but the point is not as wide as I'd prefer for thrusting. I love the shape and wrap of the grip and the finger bow seems sturdy and looks nice, if simple.
I have not had the chance to spar with it, but I have taken it vigorously against my pell and it has held up wonderfully, no loosening of the handle and no rattle.

Over all, a great HEMA saber, especially for the price when sabers seem to be short supply.

5 of 5 Excellent Sabre March 19, 2022
Reviewer: Kobe from Pleasanton, TX United States  
This Sabre is one of the best I've owned yet. The grip is comfortable to hold and the blade is very stiff - which I prefer over very floppy sabres. My only gripe is that the blade has a few minor scratches, but it doesn't bother me since this is a combat sword and not a wallhanger. All in all a great sword for the price.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ames, IA United States  
The sword was shipped quickly and in good condition. Feels absolutely wonderful in hand. If I need another sabre I'll probably get another one of these

4 of 5 Great budget trainer October 1, 2021
Reviewer: Ken M from Erie, PA United States  
Let me start by saying fantastic service by Purple Heart as always. Quickly answered questions on the chat feature, shipped hours after placing order, and had in hand two days after that. This is a very good budget sabre and I don't believe you are going to find a better at this price point. It has its issues, flex seems a little stiff(I've taken thrusts from others at our club and in my opinion its acceptable, but control always), point makes me a little nervous, random scratches/blemishes in the finish and the cross on mine was not at all square to the blade(these two aren't an issue to me as this is a training tool and I will soon put more scratches dents and bends in it). More importantly it handles well and moves like you expect a sabre to. So far no issues with durability. I have a pair of the Sparing Gloves Infinity Gauntlets and they fit under the knuckle-bow.
