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 or permanent injury to yourself or your training partner.
This Medieval Two Hand Synthetic Training Sword from Cold Steel is made from the heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicates a real sword in length, size, weight and feel. Not quite as stiff as wood, but it does have the advantage of being impervious to the elements, unbreakable and highly cut resistant. Black polypropylene construction.
Blade: 34" long
Wt: 32 oz
