Description
Hundreds of years ago, the Japanese discovered a simple truth; that to become a good swordsman you'll have to practice, a great deal. To become a great swordsman you’ll have to practice with a "live blade". And during the period between "good" and "great", you should spend your time building your skills and confidence enough to wield a razor sharp Katana safely and effectively.
To accomplish this, the Japanese relied on a simple wooden sword called a "bokken" for much of their training. It was made from the super tough wood of the Japanese White Oak, a wood they called Kashi. The swords produced from this wood had the advantage of replicating the size, weight and feel of a steel sword, while minimizing the possibility of causing grievous or permanent injury to those who used it.
Authentic Kashi wood Bokkens are still used today, but are becoming quite costly. They also have the disadvantages, being made of wood, that they may rot, crack split or splinter. Cold Steel's solution to these dilemmas was to design a synthetic substitute, low in price and impervious to the elements.
Our Bokken and our new Wakazashi Bokken are made of the heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicate a real Katana and Wakazashi in length, size, weight and feel. While they're not quite as rigid as wood, they have the advantages of being virtually unbreakable and remarkably stiff and cut resistant.

COLD STEEL BOOMERANG
Throwing a boomerang is just plain fun and has a lot of benefits that are overlooked today. Besides being a useful hunting arm, throwing a boomerang can be good exercise while dramatically increasing eye hand coordination. Anyone who shoots a bow, throws a spear, swings a bat, stick, sword, golf club, racquet or throws any kind or size of ball will benefit from learning how to throw and practice regularly with a boomerang.
Since we are in the business of making things to throw, it was only natural for us to try and improve on the boomerang by making our own, non-returning version. Injected molded from high impact Polypropylene, with a wood grain surface texture, and sporting the most aerodynamic length, shape and cross section we could devise, our boomerang fills the bill. You can use it for hunting, target throwing, and distance throwing and, in a pinch, it will also serve admirably as a highly effective self-defense tool as well.
The boomerang, or throwing stick has been used on every continent from time immemorial and is still found in use as a hunting tool in isolated pockets around the globe even today. Fashioned in various shapes, forms and sizes and made from wood, bone, horn and even metal, it was most effective when used to harvest game birds, water fowl and small game. Today, the boomerang or throwing stick is most closely associated with Australia where many original inhabitants (Aborigines) still posses the skill and knowledge to use them to put meat on the table. Affordably priced, incredibly durable, our Boomerang is fun for the whole family and will provide years of hard use and entertainment.

COLD STEEL BROOKLYN CRUSHER
"It's unbelievable. We're seeing eight to 10 bats break every game. Guys are coming back saying they hit the ball on the sweet spot and it still broke." This quote caught our President, Lynn C. Thompson's attention. It's from an article in the Los Angeles Times describing how frequently baseball bats break and nearly injure the players in major league games. The article chronicled the debate currently raging among players over which bat is better, those made of ash, which is lighter and slightly flexible, or those made of maple which is heavier and stiffer. As he read, Lynn began to suspect there might be a market for a baseball bat that just couldn't be broken. What kid, let alone an adult, wouldn't want an unbreakable bat? Now Cold Steel is proud to offer you our first forays into the manufacturing of athletic equipment, the Brooklyn Smasher® and the Brooklyn Crusher™.
Because they're precision injection molded out of heavy-grade polypropylene, these bats just can't be broken. There’s no need to worry about shards of wood flying in your face. No matter what you hit or how hard you swing them, they just won't break. And they're durable too, they won’t rot, crack, or splinter, or even fade. You can treat them as roughly as you choose. You needn’t worry about dirt or the weather affecting them either since they’re impervious to the elements and clean up with soap and water. Try that with a wood bat and you might damage it.
They're versatile too. Like any other baseball bat, croquet mallet, golf club or hockey stick, they can be used in an emergency, as an extremely effective self-defense tool. You can keep one behind the front door, under the bed, or in a car trunk and forget about it until you need it. They can be used as game bats, practice bats, warm-up bats, loaner bats, inclement weather bats, school or league bats or kid's bats. They can also serve as a cross over trainers to develop strength, agility and eye hand coordination for those studying Western Saber Fencing, Kendo, Kenjitsu, Filipino Stick and Sw
