Our improved Cold Steel Japanese Training Swords are closely modeled after the world-famous Warrior series swords. Featuring an intricately detailed imitation cord wrap grip - molded in high impact polypropylene - they offer superior grip and comfort as well as more realistic training potential for the modern Martial Artist.

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 Wakazashi Bokken is made of the heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicate a real Katana or 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: Materials, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Good quality tanto with detailed handle
Great for sparring & self defense purposes.Though a training bokken, it can do some serious damage too due to it's tough polyproplene material.As compared to previous O Tanto Bokken, this new version allows better grip with nicely tsukamaki design. Weight balance is good.If you are doubting about the product, do some research on the product testing video before purchasing to prevent dissapointment. But overall, I can say the product is definitely worth the price for it.
