Hi All,

Those of you who know us, and are following us here on this page. Maybe you have noticed that we are getting a bit more numerous each year. It is of cause lovely to expand so much. The union is living off of its members. But with growing pains comes difficulties. Some need bigger shoes and some a larger belt. For unions it is more about equipment, space and administrative problems. Ullr's Hird is no exception - and we are working hard to better the conditions for our members in any way. One of the things we get back to each year is our wasters. So far we have been making these ourselves out of wood, glue, linen etc. They are expensive, take way too long to produce and break too easily. As we are getting a bit more planet shaped, we have had a hard time producing enough of our them. In Ullr┬┤s Hird we have a principle, that all our old members take the new ones under their wing and use the same kind of wasters as they do. Therefore we are required to build up supply and replace with new ones each year. For quite some time we have had a dream about finding an alternative to our self produced wasters - LARP weapons does not suffice for obvious reasons, and we have therefore chosen to go for a different kind of waster.
We have had dialogue with a lot manufactorers. Our criteria for purchase was of cause that the price was kept at a minimum without affecting quality, that the product was uniform and that they were able to produce an axe which were 80 cm long.
We got a great deal at Purpleheart Armoury. They helped us by making a special production of their axes. They have been very patient througout the whole process, and the service has been superb at all times. We are very excitet to test them out - and should you be in our vicinity within the next few weeks, you are more than welcome to come and test them out yourselves. A more in depth review of them will come in the future Years and Peace.

4 of 5 Older model March 22, 2021
Reviewer: Remmy from Indiana  
I got mine in 2017 so I imagine stuff has changed since then so everything I say about mine may not apply to current models.
That being said, it is a pretty sturdy trainer. However like another reviewer said it is pretty forward heavy, though in my experience it's not so bad when you got a glove on. Other problem with mine is that it had a bit of a warp when it arrived which is the main reason it's not 5 stars. Tried fixing it a few times but I've basically given up since it's not like it's unusable. Still a little irritating to handle at times though.

4 of 5 Well made sword January 19, 2021
Reviewer: Rocket Williams from Trophy Club, TX United States  
Overall it seems to be a very good sword. The finish was a little marred when received, it was clearly used or tested, thus 4 starrs. As it get used, that won't matter.

4 of 5 They feel good, but a little underweight December 18, 2020
Reviewer: Peter Dunkel from ,  
We've been using these at my club for about a week now. They feel great in the hand, very well crafted, and probably are going to hold up to intense training for years to come.
Only criticism I have, is they don't feel very close to a steel viking sword when being used in cuts. But I realize that making the trainer lightweight might be necessary in order for it to be safe for sparring.
