Description and uses

An excellent training weapon, and an alternate to the feather pillow, as they do very little damage or none at all, in both hunting and fighting, while still allowing your physical strength to increase.

Real-life context

Since Roman times, through the Middle Ages and Renaissance, wooden weapons were used throughout Europe for training and practice by warriors, men-at-arms, knights and students of fencing. Wasters save wear and tear on valuable steel swords and help build strength and coordination. Also called "bavins" or later on "cudgels", wooden swords were often of double weight for instructing squires or for use on pells or even tournaments. - [1]
