  • Wooden Medieval Dagger (Waster)

    PLEASE NOTE THAT NO GUARANTEE IS OFFERED WITH THIS PRODUCT. IF YOUR WASTER BREAKS NO REPLACEMENT WILL BE OFFERED AS THE MANUFACTURER WILL NOT SUPPLY US WITH A REPLACEMENT.

    The advantages of this two-handed training dagger made of wood are obvious. On the one hand, the risk of injury is significantly lower. On the other, this dagger can withstand hard blows while your valuable steel dagger is safe at home. Of course, even outstanding hardwood is not indestructible and can break along the grain, but this medieval training dagger should be your first choice for practising. The wheel pommel and crossguard are made of darker wood, just like daggers used from the 12th to 15th century.

    Grip length: 8 cm

    1 Review(s)

    PLEASE NOTE: NO WARRANTY IS OFFERED WITH THIS PRODUCT. IF YOUR WASTER BREAKS, NO REPLACEMENT WILL BE OFFERED AS THE MANUFACTURER WILL NOT SUPPLY US WITH A REPLACEMENT. IF YOU WANT A MORE DURABLE WASTER PLEASE PURCHASE OUR SYNTHETIC SPARRING SWORDS.

    The gladius was the sword of choice for the Roman legions, and many gladiators also chose to use the double-edged sword when they were fighting for their freedom and lives in the Colosseum.After a gladiator in ancient Rome had won his freedom, he was awarded a wooden gladius like this one, called a Rudis, as a symbol of his freedom. Our Rudis is a great retirement gift for military personnel or police officers.

    Our training gladius is based on the classic Roman gladius and made entirely of hardwood. The pommel and guard are darker for visual interest. If you plan to use this wooden gladius as a training sword, be careful: the blade is made of wood but it does have a sharp point.
