    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.

    Our Bokken and our new 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.

    My only complaint is that this sword is ever so slightly bowed. Polypropelyne can lose its shape so avoid keeping it in a hot car for days at a time. I recommend hanging the sword or laying it flat.

    Otherwise, I love this trainer.

    this training beauty has since then served me loyal troughout a total of over more than 500 trainings! the damage is only visible if you really have a sharp set of eyes!

    I have had this sword for 6 months now and it makes a nice wall ornament. My friends only had wooden trainers and didn't dare to fight me for fear that theirs woud break. It makes a great wall ornament. I recently bought a bokken and me and a friend beat the heck out of the two. But this sword is still in perfect condition asside from a few scratches on the tip. It dosn't flex as nearly as much as the bokken. I would recomend this product to everybody.
