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: Usable, Overall Quality, Blade Material, Finish, None
Cons: Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Perfect tool
This weapon is very good at making you learn very quickly. However, buyers should be reminded that a hand and a half sword is also called a bastard sword. If you want to one hand this weapon it will require great strength. If you are hoping to play fight other people with this, you may want to seek a lighter sword. I also recommend some grip tape, because the hand will get very slippery when wet.

Great Fun
I bought two of these swords essentially for some heavy play with a friend of mine. The swords are hugely durable, our best swings with them have only scuffed the plastic. The shape and look of the sword is great and for anyone who only had a bokken to practice with before this adds shape and context to play. At this price the value is good. On the downside, I'll have to wrap the handle in something as it gets slippy when sweaty and out of blade thickness necessity the weight is toward the blade. Knowing this going in I wasn't too upset and still give this product an excellent rating.
