Our fully functional and historically accurate wooden practice weapons and synthetic wasters are made from high quality materials, making them strong enough to meet and exceed all Martial Artist training and practice needs. A wooden sword or waster allowed a warrior to practice full combat safely and economically while preserving his precious steel for the real battle to come. These wooden swords and wasters are fully seasoned and hand crafted in solid hardwood, with contrasting wood guard and pommel. These wooden and polypropylene swords are strong enough to meet the needs of today's swordsman or woman. Each can take the abuse of sparring and reenacting, even edge-to-edge sword fighting. Keep in mind, however, that wood can break along the grain so please practice responsibly. Synthetic swords offer increased durability, making them a good choice for more rigorous training or sparring. The designs represent edge weapons common from a number of periods and cultures. We have a full line of wooden swords and wasters available from wooden pirate swords, wooden daggers, wooden tantos, wooden bokens, wooden ninja swords and wooden samurai swords, as well as training weapons in polymers like polypropylene and more.
When it comes to combat, training is a must, and it is generally wise to start with something a bit less deadly than a real metal sword. Instead, pick up something from our synthetic swords and weapons section. Drill through the basics or practice new techniques with these synthetic sparring weapons. Many are made from sturdy and safe materials like polypropylene, and we offer an impressive range of weapon styles, from synthetic long swords and practice samurai katana to polypropylene gladius, synthetic tomahawks, and more. Whether you are brushing up on sparring skills or looking for a realistic but safe costume prop, find some of the finest reliable synthetic weapons here.
Now you can practice with some of our most popular knife designs, in relative safety, with our new rubber training knives. We have rubber training versions of our Peace Keeper I, the R1 Military Classic, Recon Tanto, and the Black Bear Classic. Each training knife has been carefully fashioned to look as realistic as possible so they can be effectively used in solo practice, training drills, disarm drills, and demonstrations and any other activity where you want a reasonably close approximation of realism but not the extreme danger and risk associated with an actual knife. These rubber blades are soft enough to prevent the likelihood of most bodily injury. They do however, have a level of firmness that might cause injury to the face or the eyes, so it is recommended that appropriate eye protection or a fencing mask is utilized at all times when using a rubber training knife.
