Matthew M. (Knoxville, US)
Sturdy and compact

Smaller than I expected, but not necessarily a bad thing (don’t have to worry about it hitting the floor). Extremely sturdy—you can feel that it won’t be breaking. Smooth beads are easy to move across during use. Saint Benedict medals are a great feature.

Paul (Woodbridge, US)
St Benedict Rosary

Beautifully crafted with the protection of St Benedict medals throughout. A wonderful addition to the other Rugged Rosaries purchased!


Very nice rosary, has a good weight to it.
