5 of 5 First purchase from Purpleheart Armoury July 29, 2023
Reviewer: Conner J. L. from Arlington, TX United States  
Great for solo training and light contact to practice techniques. Feels great in the hands and is easy to stow away.

5 of 5 Incredible value January 31, 2023
Reviewer: David Neville from Pelham, AL United States  
I thought I was getting a simpler, less fancy version of Purpleheart's famous hickory wasters, but I was totally wrong! This sword is lighter and quicker, possibly due to the fact it has a distal taper. Yes, a wooden sword with a distal taper! It feels more lively in the hand than some steel I've used. As they recommend, I don't plan on using this for sparring, but I don't spar with wooden swords so no problem there. The fit & finish are superb & because the crossguard is detachable it kept shipping down. The rubber band supplied to keep the cross in its place on the sword is tough & snugly fits in place. I can't praise this wooden sword enough - it is absolutely perfect for students learning drills, guards and flourishes. Well done to the makers at Purpleheart!

5 of 5 Excellent wooden trainer November 25, 2022
Reviewer: Alina Boyden from Raleigh, North Carolina  
The new school training longsword represents a great improvement in wooden training weapons over previous generations of wasters.  It is lighter, more agile, better-balanced, and still robust enough for serious drilling.  

The thicker edges and softer material (vs a steel feder) that the school training longsword offers provides a measure of safety for working at speed without the need to wear heavy protective tournament gear.  Wooden swords are also safer and more comfortable for drilling slices with intensity, as they put less pressure on the opponent and therefore are less likely to bruise or injure.

For anyone looking to outfit a school with cheap and effective trainers,  beginners looking for an introductory training tool, and advanced practitioners who want the fun of low gear sparring and drilling with a reduced risk of injury, the school training longsword represents a fantastic choice.
