Hand & A Half Training Sword
Cold Steel

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.

Reviewed by owners of this product

"Very nice I enjoy doing my training excersice's with it I've recommended it to a lot of my friends" - (5/5)


"A short instruction diagram would be nice" - (5/5)


"It reproduces well the weight and feeling of a metal training sword ! The only difference is the cross guard which is a lot thicker than the real thing. That makes it hard to practice some kinds of thrusts and counterattacks where locking the opponent's blade is very important. But for all the rest, great job !" - (5/5)
