The next step in double weapons was finding one that was not a blade, nor even made of metal. Deer antlers aside, the perfect fit was the escrima stick, already a double handed weapon in its own culture. While these are not made of traditional rattan, the polypropylene makes it virtually unbreakable. I have used it to smash through pine branches and Cold Steel’s video features it smashing through cement blocks. The actual sticks are a bit long for double weapon use, but they state it is for cutting down to the correct length for the user. I personally prefer to choke up on the mock bamboo finish to leave a small section below the hand as a butt for striking.
This item is very affordable and an excellent alternative to bladed weapons.
