Cold Steel – Axe Gang – Hatchet Trainer


  • The best of the world’s sword fighters have known a simple truth for ages… if you want to become a reasonably good sword fighter you should endeavor to learn sword fighting techniques, footwork and the basic stances. 
  • However, if you want to be a master at sword fighting you have to eventually start fighting with a “live blade”. 
  • If your ultimate goal is to wield a razor sharp sword safely and effectively, you need to train with a sword that approximates the size, feel and heft of a live blade, yet minimizes the possibility of causing grievous, permanent, or life-threatening injury to yourself or your training partner. 
  •  This concept was implemented by the ancient Romans, who used dull wooden swords to train their Gladiators and soldiers. 
  • Japanese Samurai used a wooden training sword that was called a Bokken. 
  • It’s an elegant solution to a vexing problem and effective enough to still be used today. 
  • The only problem is that a wooden sword can rot, crack, chip or splinter and eventually become useless. 
  •  Cold Steel’s solution to these dilemmas was to design a synthetic substitute, low in price and impervious to the elements. 
  • The Cold Steel line of Training Swords are made of heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicate a real sword in length, size, weight and feel. 
  • While they’re not quite as rigid as wood, they have the winning advantages of being virtually unbreakable, remarkably stiff and cut resistant.
