Making / Sizing a Wooden Practice Medieval Sword

This sword is great for learning how actual swordfighting positions work. When you hit another sword with it, the swords slide against each other as real metal would. It is certainly lighter than metal, which is good for me as I need to build up my arm strength.

Here is how it compares with the other swords in size. The wooden sword is second from the bottom.
