1 of 5 V3 Mediocre handle, stiff, permanent bend. May 2, 2022
Reviewer: Matthew from Oakton  
The seam where the leather is stitched together on the grip is a fairly uncomfortable hot spot, and the pommel cap is misaligned with the grip so that it sticks out into my hand. The latter issue isn't a big deal, and the former issue is somewhat fixable by removing the pommel cap entirely, but both are to be noted. The hilt is glued to the tang, so keep this in mind before trying modification.
The blade is the biggest issue, it's a VERY stiff weapon, flexing at 38 lbs rather than the advertised 20 lbs. The one I have appears to be a new variation/revision, which is unfullered.
On the other hand, it handling is as expected more or less, with weight and balance being exactly as listed: 830g and 4 inch POB for this revision. Minimal edge damage on account of the overly thick blade, but it took a permanent bend on just it's first day of sparring.

3 of 5 Steels good, grip is meh February 14, 2022
Reviewer: Katlyn R from Fayetteville, AR  
The saber blade has withstood a few good sparring bouts without a problem but the grip is not flat. The wrap has come together in a way that makes a ridge. Can't really feel it through gloves but it seems like it might tear in time.

Reviewer: Robby Peters from Summerfield, NC United States  
Fast service, good quality training swords.  Purpleheart Armoury will likely be my main source for HEMA equipment.
