Kraft Paper Roll (Sword Cutting Target)
This roll of paper is 75 lb thickness (not actual weight) and 24 inches wide. It provides a reliable way to practice hundreds of cuts with your sword. We don't recommend thinner paper, as it's too easy to cut and can tear easily.
This paper was used as an obstacle in the beginning, open, and advanced cutting tournaments at SoCal Swordfight 2022, where it received praise from competitors at all levels for its simplicity and consistent results when cutting. It's a great water bottle and tatami mat cutting alternative.
Paper will test your technique and provide feedback over a wide cutting arc. Keep in mind that you will need something to hang this roll from when cutting. A sturdy overhead beam or a thick branch can work.
Each roll is made of 100% recycled paper, and can be recycled (or reused) again. Fun fact: At SoCal Swords, all our paper packing material was cut with swords!
