Synthetic Parrying Dagger

Description of the Product
Practice makes perfect, and so it is with knife-fighting skills. Before reaching levels of excellence, however, that practice should be conducted in relative safety. That is now possible with these synthetic training knives. Practice weapons of all kinds always have to balance realism with safety. If the weapon is too realistic it will function like the real weapon and there is a risk of serious and unnecessary injury. If the weapon however is too soft and bendy, it will be useless as a training tool as it will move and act differently from the real deal. The material used in this synthetic weapon is Santoprene, which combines the best qualities of rubber and polypropylene.
The blade is soft and flexible enough to prevent the likelihood of most bodily injury. The edges are rounded and the point dull. For sufficient realism, however, the blade has to be firm enough, and not wobble. Therefore even a synthetic blade might cause injury, especially to the face or the eyes, so appropriate protection must be utilized at all times when using this training knife.
This Parrying dagger has been carefully fashioned to look as realistic as possible, so it can be effectively used in solo practice, training drills, disarm drills, and demonstrations, or any other activity where you want a reasonably close approximation of realism but not the extreme danger and risk associated with an actual dagger. A ring guard protects your hand when parrying just like ring guards did on the originals. Perfect for practicing main gauche techniques against rapiers. The handle is textured for a good grip. This trainer is affordable, functional and very durable.
Very nice and finished piece that looks good and functions well as a training tool in martial arts, as a demonstration piece or as an accessory for your reenactment- or LARP-gear. Manufacturer: Cold Steel.
Overall Length 53,3 cm, blade length 36,8 cm, handle 16,5 cm. Blade thickness 13 mm. Weight 200 g.
Absolutely worth visiting. Things to wonder and admire for hours and to buy... Don't tell your spouse unless he/she is also an enthusiast :)
