Cold Steel Hand & A Half Training SwordHundreds of years ago, the Japanese discovered a simple truth; that to become a good swordsman you'll have to practice, a great deal. To become a great swordsman youll have to practice with a "live blade". And during the period between "good" and "great", you should spend your time building your skills and confidence enough to wield a razorsharp Katana safely and effectively.To accomplish this, the Japanese relied on a simple wooden sword called a "bokken" for much of their training. It was made from the super tough wood of the Japanese White Oak, a wood they called Kashi. The swords produced from this wood had the advantage of replicating the size, weight and feel of a steel sword, while minimizing the possibility of causing grievous or permanent injury to those who used it.Authentic Kashi wood Bokkens are still used today, but are becoming quite costly. They also have the disadvantages, being made of wood, that they may rot, crack split or splinter. Cold Steels solution to these dilemmas was to design a synthetic substitute, low in price and impervious to the elements.This training sword is made of the heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicate a real Katana and Wakazashi in length, size, weight and feel. While theyre not quite as rigid as wood, they have the advantages of being virtually unbreakable and remarkably stiff and cut resistant. Specifications: Model#: 92BKHNH Weight: 31.7 oz.
