The blades are designed to flex in the last one-third of their length towardsthe tip, allowing for much safer thrusting than with conventional woodenwasters or shinai. The blade/tang joint is reinforced by a high tensile steelrod running along the full length of the handle, so removing the handle flextypically associated with plastic training swords.

The grips aremanufactured from a rubber-like thermoplastic elastomer, designed to absorbthe impact of strikes and to provide a tight fit on the tangs. Thesesynthetic-bladed swords also provide an excellent option for Theatrical use aswell.
