Katana - KIL Aluminum Trainer
By popular request. We finally came up with a very hardy aluminum training Samurai style katana that can safely take some serious contact.
Most aluminum swords of this kind are very decorative, but also very dangerous to use due to the fact that cheap aluminum is prone to breaking and hence you have a dangerous piece of metal flying through the air.
With the help of various metallurgical experts, as well as weapons experts, we designed a very safe aircraft hardened aluminum that will take abuse. It will bend before it will break, perfect.
Now, it will take some heavy abuse, but we can only recommend that you do not go at it at full force. That can be dangerous with any training tool. But, we are fully confident that you can go up to half speed and force, and maybe even up to 3/4 speed and force, but not more.
Excellently balanced and weighted to approximate a traditional Shinto period style Japanese katana.
