Rand al'Thor and Lan Mandragoran performing sword forms using practice swords

A practice sword is shaped like a true sword but is made of bundled wood lathes and is bound with cloth to reduce impact and the risk of injury.

It is used by young men wanting to learn the sword. The most notable examples are Rand al'Thor when training with Lan Mandragoran and the Warders-in-training and Younglings at the White Tower, including Gawyn Trakand and Galadedrid Damodred.

The practice sword is similar to the real life shinai: a bamboo sword used in the Japanese martial art of Kendo.
