Review of: Medieval Hand and Half Synthetic Training Sword

This has been a great practice sword and I have even used it on stage in  some shows.

Review of: Medieval Hand and Half Synthetic Training Sword

I wanted a practice sword that approximated the length and weight of my Bosworth Longsword and this sword comes quite close (it is actually 3-3/8 inches shorter and heavier than the Bosworth sword, but does quite well)

This is the first time I have bought a polypropylene practice sword (the others are made of wood).  I am quite pleased with it and will be buying more of the polypropylene practice weapons in the future.

As an added bonus, I can take it into my medieval history class to show the students the size difference between it and the arming sword without violating the "no weapons" policy of the college!

Probably unbreakable, water proof, and good weight to it, should last forever.

Review of: Synthetic Training Buckler

This shield is thick enough to withstand a beating and heavy enough to feel right in your hand.  For the price, it is a good deal.

Review of: Gladius Synthetic Training Sword

A few months ago I purchased the wooden version, which was very much like the "wooden rudus" that was given to retiring gladiators. I chose this since I thought it would be a better gladius to practice with, and I was right.

Review of: Medieval One-Hand Synthetic Training Sword

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.
