HEMA Reviews YT channel

Hulloh folks.

I've decided to make a channel dedicated to reviewing HEMA gear, unsurprisingly named HEMA Reviews. The first item is a pair of ensifer gloves, or sparringglove.com gloves. I've tried to make it as detailed as possible.

Generally, the channel will have reviews of protective gear, such as jackets and gloves as well as swords, mostly ones meant for practice. I'll try to review the most popular ones - however, I'm but a poor student, and I can't afford to buy and buy and buy, so I'll be operating mostly on the kindness of my groupmembers who will lend me their equipment for a few weeks so that I can review it. Otherwise, I'd gladly accept ideas on what to review next. :)

So here's the link:

Comments are welcome, both here and on the video!

I also give an idea for a modification which I found incredibly useful, as well as some ideas on improving the jacket. Hope you find it useful!

If at all possible, I'll try to keep this updated weekly. :)

I know that many of you know at least most of this, but I'd still say it's good to have some sort of a basis on which to say "this is a good sword". I don't really think this is quite it, but it's something. Hopefully, you'll find it useful.

Also, if there is anything that I might have missed, forgotten, or did not know about, I'd be happy to learn. :)

Had a guest reviewer this time - Rob Runacres, who did me a favor in helping out with the Marco Danelli rapier review, since I don't do rapier. Hopefully you'll find it useful. And I can say we finally have someone in the EU who is at least as good, if not better, as Darkwood in making rapiers.
