Description
CS92BKHNH: 92BKHNH Hand-and-a-Half Trainer
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.

Pros: Materials, Usable, Handle Material, Blade Material, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Definitely get 2.
I bought 2 for sparring and technique, I am more than pleased. Substantial weight and reach, good balance. The handle gets slippery, so grip hard when practicing. Also good for self defense. The rubber band needs to be watched closely, mine is beginning to crack from temperature change and weathering. Other than that great product.

Training sword
Not wanting to practice with a live sword everyday, particularly sparring with others; we found this to be the perfect substitute. It's weighty--though whether that's a problem or not depends on your preference--I personally enjoy this, and i practice one and two-handed forms. As a side-note: I tend to wear (leather) gloves; if you don't, i might recommend wrapping the hilt for a more comfortable grip. ^_^
