The best of the world’s martial artists have known a simple truth for ages… if you wish to turn out to be moderately good at wielding a Fighting implement, you will have to endeavor to learn the best Fighting techniques, footwork, and the basic stances. On the other hand if you wish to be a master at it you’ll have to eventually start training with a “live weapon”. if, for example, your ultimate goal is to wield a razor sharp sword safely and effectively, you wish to have to train with a sword that approximates the size, feel and heft of a live blade, yet minimizes the potential for causing grievous, permanent, or life threatening injury to yourself or your training partner. This concept was implemented by the ancient Romans, who used dull wooden swords to train their gladiators and soldiers.And Japanese samurai used a wooden training sword that was called a bokken. It’s an elegant solution to a vexing problem and effective enough to still be used today. The only problem is that a wooden training weapon can Rot, crack, chip or splinter and eventually turn out to be useless. Cold Steel solution to these dilemmas was to design a line of synthetic substitutes, that are low in price and impervious to the elements. The Cold Steel line of training weapons are made of the heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicate their Real counterparts in length, size and feel. At the same time as they’re not fairly as rigid as wood, they have the winning advantages of being virtually unbreakable, remarkably stiff and cut resistant. Features: – impervious to the elements – made of the heaviest grade polypropylene available – duplicate their Real counterparts in length, size and feel – virtually unbreakable, remarkably stiff and cut resistant. Specifications: – overall length: 31″ – blade length: 22″ – weight: 24 oz. – thickness: 3/4″
