The best of the worlds martial artists have known a simple truth for ages... if you want to become reasonably good at wielding a fighting implement, you should endeavor to learn the best fighting techniques, footwork, and the basic stances. However if you want to be a master at it you will 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 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. Its 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 become useless.

Cold Steels 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. While theyre not quite as rigid as wood, they have the winning advantages of being virtually unbreakable, remarkably stiff and cut resistant.
