It has a bit of weight to it, to gives you a bit of a workout when practicing too. Red Oak a super durable wood but the design of these makes them only suitable for solo practice or light partner work. They are not designed for being smashed into things.

Tai Chi practitioners and Kung Practitioners alike will love these swords and find them a great asset to their range of weapons and practice items.
Partner practice is possible but really only something like sticky sword in Tai Chi is best. Mainly they are to be used for solo practice like forms and drills. Look after this sword and it will last you a lifetime.
