- 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
- 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.
