Medieval Wooden Practice (Wasters) Dagger

Product Code: 600602
Brand: Windlass
More Information
A wooden weapon, or waster, was a common training tool for the practise of swordsmanship throughout the Middle Ages. This training weapon allowed a warrior to practise full combat safely while preserving his precious steel for the real battle to come. Our practise weapons are hand crafted of solid, fully seasoned hardwood. With contrasting wood guard and pommel, they are strong enough to meet the needs of today's swordsman (or woman). Each can take the abuse of sparring and reenacting, even edge-to-edge. (Keep in mind, however, that wood can break along the grain.) The dagger design represents edge weapons common from the 12th to 15th centuries.
