4 of 5 Very sturdy, just a tad overbuilt September 23, 2020
Reviewer: Levi Fontaine from Andover, KS United States  
I didn't even know you could harden leather that much. I'm very impressed with how strong it is, it's like having a steel hilt almost. My only minor criticism is more of a personal/discipline specific issue, because I mainly practice Italian sabre and I understand these are meant for practicing English systems, but the back end of the basket does dig into the wrist on extension, making certain cuts difficult. Something that can probably easily be compensated for, but I am used to mainly steel sabre so for avid singlestick fencers this probably isn't even an issue.

4 of 5 Sturdy leather singlestick baskethilt August 22, 2018
Reviewer: Jani L from Finland  
This is made from thick hardened leather and it will definitely cover your hand during single stick drills.
Holes where a bit on the small size and I had to carve those a bit wider to fit my rattan single stick but that took about 15minutes and now it fits a perfectly.

The postal costs are a bit steep to europe (3/4 of the price of the baskethilt) but there was good tracking info, shipping was fast and this kind of quality product I am a happy customer.

Reviewer: Kyle West from Dallas, TX United States  
I was amazed at how hard the leather is. It does a great job of protecting those knuckles.
