4 of 5 Decent trainer December 21, 2020
Reviewer: Richard from Minneapolis  
The Venetian Infantry trainer is sturdy, appropriately-sized sword. There are three down-sides to this trainer:
1) the sword is top-heavy. It's point of balance is close to 8 inches up the blade from the handle (not including the finger ring). It could use a heavier pommel for balance.
2) The finger loop works, but it's so wide that it's fairly uncomfortable to hit solid targets holding it like that.
3) The grip is too wide - the cord wrapping seems to expand it to almost uncomfortable levels.
I still gave it 4 stars, because from the pictures you can tell that the balance isn't going to be great, and it is a synthetic trainer. It's still a solid piece of construction that gets the point across!

5 of 5 Best Option for Cut and Thrust August 10, 2020
Reviewer: Justin from Orlando, FL  
This is the best alternative to a steel cut and thrust blade on the market. There are a few other options, but at their price points you are better saving up and getting steel. I also have the Rawlings synthetic, which is certainly okay, however this is half the price and honestly handles and feels much better. The inclusion of the knuckle guards is perhaps the best part that sets this apart, however the whole "Basic Trainer" series is excellent, and I think the best line of products to set Purple Heart apart from the rest of the HEMA suppliers.

Thank you for providing a quality and truly affordable option to the HEMA community!

5 of 5 Venetian trainer June 19, 2018
Reviewer: Joshua Blankenship from Oliver Springs, TN United States  
I'm extremely satisfied. The weight and dimensions are accurate and well balanced. It's durable and flexible while still being reasonably priced and most importantly it feels good in the hand. Thank you so much!
