This polypropylene training medieval sword is the only way to master sword fighting without the risk of injury. Each sword is constructed of high-impact resistant polypropylene that will withstand years of brutal training. Looks and feels just like a real medieval sword, but it's safe for sword fighting.
Review of: Polypropylene Middle Ages Sword
- James Evans
This item is only able to be used as either a display or just as a technique reference tool NOT FOR ACTUAL SPARRING! It makes a great toy or for use teaching a child about sword safety and teaching them techniques they can later transfer over to with a real blade.

Review of: Polypropylene Training Broadsword Black
- Craig Townsend
this bokken is well worth the money. It is of a quality that is only found in much more expensive bokkens. It is perfect in weight and size for women and short stature Students, which is hard to find. The guard is way to loose which is of no matter for aikido students since we take the tsuba off anyway. buy this one it is well worth the money!!
