Hardwood long weapons or pole arms, are used in many Chinese martial arts systems. Raven Studios training weapons are designed to withstand the rigors of partner training and are also well suited for forms and solo technique practice. I feel it is important that each training weapon mimic a real weapons performance and feel as closely as possible, therefore these hardwood practice weapons are constructed with the following qualities:
- Blades are made from hickory and have a rounded edge for durability.
- On bladed weapons, the tang is 10″ to 12″ long and is laminated and riveted to the handle.
- Handles are made from two pieces of hickory wood laminated together for maximum strength and to help prevent warping.
- All weapons are finished with a linseed and tung oil blend which penetrates into the wood to create a tough and durable surface.
