Dao Synthetic Trainer

The Purpleheart Type III Dao was designed to give martial artists an alternative training tool. The guard design lets you train closer to speed and intensity as in real battle.

  • The blade is stiff, but has some flex and and retains enough stiffness to permit dynamic and vigorous fencing actions with a minimum of unrealistic blade whipping.
  • The durable synthetic material allows a blade thickness half that of most wooden wasters. This allows for a closer approximation of winding with steel weapons. At the same time, the blade thickness helps distribute impact force compared to steel blade edges, making for a slightly safer training alternative.
  • These training tools can stand up to years of daily, high impact training. They do not develop splinters like wood, or sawtooth notches like steel.

5 of 5 Another great trainer September 9, 2023
Reviewer: Julian Benton from Santa Rosa, CA United States  
I have previously ordered other types of synthetic trainers from Purple Heart Armory and have found them all to be of excellent quality and functionality. Some of my training partners are jealous since they are mostly still using wood trainers.
