Behind every great warrior is a practice weapon. Something he can train with safetly. It can be anything from a rubber knife or a gun to a wood sword such as these practice swords.
For thousands of years warriors have trained with wooden swords also known as a bokken or a wooden training tool. They are great for sparing and katas. They fully functional and historically accurate wooden practice swords that are strong enough to meet and exceed all Martial Artists training and practice needs. If you get struck with one it stings greatly but it is better than loosing a limb as would happen if you practiced with real swords which we discourage for obvious reasons. These high quality practice swords are made of solid wood and build for abuse.
These practice katanas are 40" long and have a nylon cord wrapped handle to give you a solid grip even during intese setions where you are sweating. For the money, I think these may be the finest practice swords avaialble. Two piece handguard included.
