Swordsmen have known a simple truth for ages – If your ultimate goal is to wield a sharp blade safely and effectively, you need to supplement your training with a tool that approximates the size, feel and heft of a blade, yet minimizes the possibility of causing grievous, permanent injury to yourself or your training partner.
This concept was implemented by many cultures, including the ancient Romans, who used wooden swords (the rudis) to train their legions.
Wooden training tools, however, can rot, crack, chip or splinter. Cold Steel’s solution was to design a line of synthetic polymer substitutes. Low in cost and unaffected by all but the most extreme temperatures, they are waterproof, weatherproof and astonishingly durable. 

*Be responsible - always work under control and with appropriate protection, especially around the eyes; even a synthetic trainer can be dangerous.

Also, in the current climate of heightened security in public places, it is not recommended to modify these trainers by painting them with metallic colours. This would make them indistinguishable from a live weapon from a distance.

Impressive quality, overall balance and sturdiness-to-weight ratio. Center of gravity about one hand's length from top of hilt.
