Description
CS92BK: 92BK Bokken Trainer
Cold Steel
 
Hundreds 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 you’ll 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 razor sharp 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 Steel's solution to these dilemmas was to design a synthetic substitute, low in price and impervious to the elements.

The Bokken and the Wakazashi Bokken are made of the heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicate a real Katana and Wakazashi in length, size, weight and feel. While they're not quite as rigid as wood, they have the advantages of being virtually unbreakable and remarkably stiff and cut resistant.

Pros: Overall Quality, Usable, Blade Material, Materials
Cons: None
Excellent training weapon, though great for many purposes.
I absolutely love the weight and feel of this practice Bokken. I've purchased both this product and the slightly larger/heavier O Bokken, and both have been absolutely wonderful for contact sparring and other heavy duty uses. We've used them for multiple hours in various training sessions and they look and feel as good as the day I bought them.

The Bokken Training swords are great, better than we expected. The size and weight are right on and the material so far has been durable. Very nice.

Love These!
They hurt, their tough, their wonderful all around. The Cold Steel training Bokken is a wonderful trainer. I am not a true master, but these are a lot of fun with friends. What is more to say? Oh yeah, the price tag is not very becoming either!
