Re: Cold Steel Bokken
Oiling is indeed what I refer to. And no, it's not a big deal. I only mention it in relation to the Cold Steel poly-whatever-ine ones.
And I do just mean the dings. I actually like them (it shows you've been training!), but again I mention it in relation to the Cold Steel bokken which don't do that.
I'd still rather have a good wooden one. I have a crap wooden one with a crack in it from it being a poor selection for a bokken and the Cold Steel ones because I wanted to try them and they were on sale.
