Excellent Gift
I have ordered a few gifts from Purpleheart Armoury and they have all come out amazing. The shadow plaque with steel gladius sword and sheath is an awesome gift. You can see the amount of detail that goes into making it. The instructions that were provided for ordering the gift was very clear and the team was very responsive with any questions that I had. Thank you for a great gift!

A Great Award
First, the quality and design are amazing. Second, the customer service was beyond reproach. Third, Brandi V. was an absolute pleasure to work with. She did an amazing job and even went above and beyond to ensure our order was correct and delivered on time. Especially, since we were delayed in our ordering. Finally, I would recommend both the sword, the design and Purpleheart Armory to everyone.
