Wood Saber care TIPS
- When you show your saber to someone who knows nothing about it, be sure to tell the person what to do before handing it to them. This will protect your saber and will prevent injury.
- Never lay your saber on the ground. Somebody may step on it (bad).
- Avoid unnecessary whacking with your wood saber. Too much whacking and it just might break.
- Once in a while, clean it, and apply a light coat of wood polish or wood oil to the blade.
- Stick with wood sabers until you are ready for a metal saber. Metal sabers hurt if you hit somebody in training. Be smart.
