    Since 1980, when he first read Guru Dan Inosanto's book, "The Filipino Martial Arts", our President, Lynn C. Thompson, has diligently studied and trained in these disciplines. Lynn's extensive sparing experiences, combined with his study and training had an immeasurable impact in shaping Cold Steel into the company it is today.

    Our brand new Cold Steel Escrima Stick resembles a traditional rattan stick in length, weight, and cross section, it is however, much more durable because it is injection molded from super tough black polypropylene. It measures 32" long and is 1" in diameter and weighs a little over 15 ounces. Unlike rattan, it resists mildew, and won’t dry out, warp, crack splinter or shrink, and with the use of a saw, it can easily be modified to any length. Plus, like our baseball bats, Bokken, and African Walking Stick, it is easy to clean and is so resistant to impact stresses and the elements, that it is virtually unbreakable and practically indestructible. We’re confident that stick fighting enthusiasts and the Filipino Martial Arts Community will want to add one or more of these sticks to their training arsenal.

    I recently purchased this product. It is extremely well made and durable. I found it a bit long and heavy for my use, as I'm a small person, and found their customer service friendly and helpful for the best way to reduce its length.

    I've been studying dacayana escrima for about 2 and a half years now and a pair of cold steel sticks has been with me for most of that time. I got them, about 6 months apart, intrigued by the notion of sticks that wouldn't break no matter what the abuse you put them through. Besides, thought I, this is the 21st century. If some of the most popular guns on the market can be polymer, why not sticks?
    Well they certainly preformed as advertised, 2 years later and not much has changed since I got them. A few scratches and nicks but they're still pretty stable. That being said, they have a few disadvantages novices should be aware of. First off, the weight. These are a lot heftier than your garden variety rattan sticks. When I first got them, I could barely swing them. Part of that was my conditioning at the time, but a lot of that was they were just unwieldy. I shaved the first section off each and it was a lot more manageable, but that put me at a disadvantage when doing disarms and 2 stick drills. The nickname they have in my class is the black pipes. That being said, they're good for conditioning and building up your strength. The second disadvantage is, ironically enough they're to tough. I took them on a deployment last year and kept up my training with another accolyte, and when 6 months of wood work were up, my cs sticks were going strong and he was left with a pair of rattan nunchucks! So with that being said, are they bad products? Not at all. They're great for building up strength, and they'll definitely take whatever abuse you swing them at. I'm currently on another deployment and I have them with me at work every day, partly to act as batons, we don't have any at our location, partly for pt, (I've worked out a circuit training routine with them,) and partly because the snakes are numerous enough around these parts that it helps to keep about 26 inches of snake repellent on my person.
    My advice to new comers would be to buy a pair and use them for strength training, but keep a pair of rattan to practice with others.

    When it says quantity 1 does it mean its 2 sticks or just 1.

    I need to know! I'm a polypropylene weapon collector (specifically , you, Cold Steel). I Really NEED to know! And so do everyone else!! As a collector I may want two, but that's because I want to be Omnipotent with several weapons. It makes it easier and faster if I have a willing family member or friend that would help me get the strikes, blocks, and footwork down(all while us both learning and teaching each other). Eventually moving on to fighting each other in mock battles. This why I need to know if purchases come with two Escrima sticks (or whatever they are called...) I don't need to buy four orders of two, getting 8 of them when I can get two orders of two or four orders of one getting the numbr I want...Only four, only four! Only four Escrima Sticks please, so if you could kindly tell me if each order comes with two or one sticks, so I know how much money I'm wasting or not wasting my money on extras that I won't use... so please tell me because people are wondering if its two or one with purchases... they will wonder even more becaus of this messeage. I wrote this so you would know hoow I feel about not knowing if there are one or two sticks with the payed for purchase
