This Medieval one handed training sword from Cold Steel is made from the heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicates a real sword in length, size, weight and feel. Not quite as stiff as wood, but it does have the advantage of being impervious to the elements, unbreakable and highly cut resistant. 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 or permanent injury to yourself or your training partner.

Ideal Training sword for Arming Swords.
I received the Classical Medieval One Hand sword (herein "Arming Sword) as a gift and began using that for basic Physical Therapy and Exercise and found it to be excellent for building core muscles.

But then some friends saw that and wanted some practical instruction in how to use a sword so I picked up two of these for that purpose.

The blade length of these training swords is identical to the Classical Arming Sword and the cross hilt is similar enough.

The hilt of the Training Sword is a bit longer than the arming sword and it works well for hand and a half maneuvers.  It's a difference but not in an unwieldy way..

On measuring the weight these Training Swords are only one and a half pounds heavy while the Arming Sword comes in at Two and two Thirds pounds (almost the three pounds I was expecting).

The balance on both swords is similar so that makes this Training Sword practically interchangeable with using an Arming (or One Handed) sword.


I still will use the Arming Sword for work outs and physical therapy because of the added weight, but these are going to come in handy for HEMA training.

A great practice sword.
This is really useful for sparring purposes and I've even used it on stage in
"PIPPIN" - we painted the grip brown and the blade silver and it worked very well.

Very nice looking training sword. Seems to have good balance. Maybe the only drawback would be a lack of a scabbard to make carrying it easier at re-enactments or costume parties.
