The best of the world's sword fighters have known a simple truth for ages... if you want to become a reasonably good sword fighter you should endeavor to learn sword fighting techniques, footwork and the basic stances. However, if you want to be a master at sword fighting you have to eventually start fighting with a "live blade". If your ultimate goal is to wield a razor sharp sword safely and effectively, you need to train with a sword that approximates the size, feel and heft of a live blade, yet minimizes the possibility of 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 sword can rot, crack, chip or splinter and eventually become useless.

Cold Steel's solution to these dilemmas was to design a synthetic substitute, low in price and impervious to the elements. The Cold Steel line of Training Swords are made of heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicate a real sword in length, size, weight and feel. While they're not quite as rigid as wood, they have the winning advantages of being virtually unbreakable, remarkably stiff and cut resistant.

This item is very durable, as expected from Cold Steel. The weight feels like a real weapon's. It can easily withstand full contact training against other polypropylene weapons. Highly recommended for enthusiasts.

It was just what I was hoping for and it arrived very quick. Now I just need to the sword training DVD.

The balance is a little bit farther out along the blade than it would be on an actual sword. Very minor effect. The plastic practice sword is just incredibly strong for sword practice work. So much better than a wooden practice sword! I was a bit iffy on Cold Steel's advertising of these, but in the hand, they meet or exceed expectations. Really quite good!
