Why choose this training sword?
“Blood groove” is a colloquial term for a rounded slot in the side of a blade. It is a common misconception that these grooves are designed to channel blood away from a wound. The proper name for a blood groove is a “fuller” and its actual purpose is to decrease the weight of a blade without compromising strength.
