Wooden Swords

When it comes to practicing swordsmanship, training weapons are vital. After all, you do not want or need to use your sharp steel blade against a friend and peer - not when you can get the same effect by using a perfectly safe wooden sword or synthetic sword! That is why, at Dark Knight Armoury, we offer a wide range of wooden and training weapons, so that you can practice in safety. Our training weapons come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, allowing the medieval warrior to select the weapon they desire, so that they can train in the techniques that are of the most interest to them. These include wooden variations of the long sword, the bastard sword, the two-handed sword, the gladius, and even the pirate saber, as well as synthetic and polypropylene versions to match these weapons. We also offer what is perhaps the most iconic wooden sword in history, the bokken. This Japanese training tool allowed the samurai, as well as students of kendo and kenjutsu, to train in safety, and now, it allows you to do the same. Some bokken are left unadorned, while others are a bit more ornate, making them equally nice display pieces, should you choose to do so. We also offer a synthetic and a polypropylene bokken, which enhances the durability of a wooden model by leaps and bounds, making it perfect for a full-force sparring match. Please be aware, though, that not all training weapons are made for full-force sparring. Some are designed specifically for solo practice, while others are made for contact sparring, so read your chosen training sword or wooden weapons description carefully, to make sure it is exactly what you need. When it comes to swordplay, every warrior should have a training weapon to use for practice, and at Dark Knight Armoury, we offer our training weapons at low prices, so that even a warrior on a budget can advance their skills in safety.
