Description
CS92BKW: 92BKW Wakazashi Bokken
Cold Steel
 
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.

The Bokken and the 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.

Pros: Usable, Overall Quality, Blade Material, Materials
Cons: Handle Material, None
as tough as it gets
i have owned one of these for almost three years and have beaten it on literally anything i could get away with. from trees to sheet metal the blade does dent but i can personally guarantee based on my experience with this bokken that you have to by down right inhumanly strong to have even the slightest chance of breaking it. the handle can be slippery though.

The material is very strong and durable. I went out with my friend to practice Kenjitsu with the bokken wakazashi and it feels like an actual samurai sword. It's a better lighter than a real wakazashi, but it is superb for practice. If you want to learn how to use a samurai sword, I would highly recommend buying this item for practice only.
