Cold Steel Polypropylene Gladius Trainer
The best of the world's sword fighters have known a simple truth for ages... if 
you want to become a reasonably good sword fighter you should endeavour to learn.
sword fighting techniques, footwork and the basic stances. However, if you want 
to be a master at sword fighting you have to eventually start fighting with a 
"live blade". 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 minimises the possibility of causing grievous, 
permanent, or life threatening injury to yourself or your training partner. 
Cold Steel's solution to these dilemmas was to design a synthetic substitute, 
low in price and impervious to the elements. The Cold Steel line of Training 
Swords are made of heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicate 
a real sword in length, size, weight and feel. While they're not quite as rigid 
as wood, they have the winning advantages of being virtually unbreakable, 
remarkably stiff and cut resistant. 
The Gladius Trainer is a perfect practical sword for re-enactors of the Roman period.
