Description
CS92BKAXG: 92BKAXG Axe Gang Hatchet Trainer
Cold Steel

These are good quality training hatchets. It can still do some damage so some care is required. The following explanation of training swords also applies to this product:
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.

Cold Steel Gang Hatchet Trainer
This trainer is good. However, it has a major problem. The problem is it chips when it strikes another trainer. Because of this I can't use it for sparring as I intended to. Although it may hold up with less rough use ( I frequently use all my trainers ), it doesn't work for me. Although Somewhat disappointed with its quality, it definately makes a great showpeice.

Pros: Weight, None
Cons: Head Material, Balance
i mainly use this for cutting small trees and splitting wood but its a strait handle so it seems to be kinda hard to hold on to. the weight is good for throwing, but its not a very strong handle so after a while the wood handle came of of the axe.It does come sharp, but its hard to sharpen.
