Practice, Training & Stage Combat Swords

Training sabers and swords are quite possibly the most valuable of any you may own. They allow you to practice safely either by yourself or with others. You’ll find live steel to be a dangerous alternative and training partners may be tough to come by when you’re always putting them in the hospital. Stuntmen and women train with them for months ahead of shooting and martial artists, both Western and Eastern use them for katas and dueling.

Training blades have a realistic feel, balance, and weight of the real thing. They can feature alternate materials like rubber, plastic, polypropylene, aluminum, latex and wood. They can also be steel. But whatever the choice of material, the most important features are the strong handles and full tangs plus the additional safety of thick blades, blunt tips, and rolled edges.

Review of: Training Saber with Steel Scabbard

Little lighter than expected but it will do for training. Like it.

Review of: Hutton Dueling Sabre with Scabbard

This dueling sabre is light and nimble in the hand. Pleasing to the eye, pleasing in the hand. Sheathing and unsheathing the sabre from the scabbard is always a delight. For Hema, SCA, against rapiers and light weapons, for solo drilling and sparring. Its perfect. Especially if you can't handle 3 lbs. for long periods. NEVER use this against heavier weapons like Arming swords, Longswords, or Heavier Sabres from Regenyei, Darkwood Armory, Castille Armory. For these swords are heavy duty sabres that will chew up the Windlass sabre. Just don't risk it.

Review of: Trainer O Tanto Bokken

Bought tanto, katana and wakizashi for my son and we fight with them pretty frequently. All three are very tough. The proportions and weight make them feel very substantial in the hand. If you compare with the price of flimsy nerf swords, this is a great value, because basically these are pretty formidable as real weapons. I've also found that a piece of foam pipe insulation slides right over the blade and will keep the wife from feinting.
