Why do I call the Foxknife SCA rattan swords “wasters”?

While the term waster can be applied to any piece used to simulate a real sword for sport or practice purposes, not all SCA rattan swords are the same. Most SCA heavy fighters use 1.25 inch diameter round “batons” for swords. Some use a slightly thicker piece of rattan that has been shaved on two sides into a “plank” and only a select few pay as much attention to their swords as their helmets and have balanced rattan swords that have both a linear taper and a distal taper. This is what I mean when I use the term “waster”.
