Training Dagger


  • 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 must 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.
  • The blade however should minimize 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.
  • The Bokken is 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 Training Dagger is made of the heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicates a real dagger in length, size, weight and feel.
  • While it’s not quite as rigid as wood, it has the winning advantages of being virtually unbreakable, remarkably stiff and cut resistant.
