Cold Steel 92BKHNH Hand and A Half Training Sword. 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.

The Cold Steel Hand & A Half Training/Practice sword is a synthetic substitute for a traditional wood practice/training bokken. The Cold Steel Practice Sword features a 34" blade, 1.0" thick, made of the heaviest grade polypropylene available, and closely resembles a real sword in length, size, weight, and feel. While not quite as rigid as wood, the Cold Steel Training sword has the advantage of being virtually unbreakable, as well as remarkably stiff and cut resistant. Handle length: 10". Overall length: 44.0". Weight: 31.7 ounces.

I found this to be a pretty good hand-and-a-half practice sword. As with most such swords, its a bit heavy for one-handed use and the grip is a bit short for a two-handed sword, but it is supposed to be an in between sword, so it fits the bill. I just wish they also made a nice one-handed sword and a true two-handed sword, with more weight and a longer grip, for better leverage with two hands.

My boys are going through a sword fighting phase and I thought these were a good alternative to sticks and other creative items they were using. They are heavy, very sturdy, and well made. They love them. They are clearly made for adult use but my 14 year old and 7 year old both wield them well. NOTE: They are real practice swords and can cause damage! My son dropped it blade tip down on my hardwood floor and caused an indent, and one hit the white board in the house and left an indent. So needless to say, they are now outside toys!

This is an excellent training sword that is sturdy and a good weight for beginning sword training. The Cold Steel polypropylene line of training swords and knives beat any competitor training tools by a long shot. Highly recommended.
