    http://www.nolieblades.com/order.html does any body have an alternative idea to this? the no lie blades are expensive! I was planning on making one myself, but lipstick is out as a marking agent. any ideas is greatly appreciated.

    tools would be any reagular training knife. Either plastic or aluminum. I was thinking of cutting a piece of sponge and gluing it on the training blade.. any thoughts on this?

    you might wish to try and buy some fake fur, it will not absorb the material you marking material as much as a sponge but will still allow marks to be made. plus it would be easier to put glue on to the blade rathet tightly i would think. and save up money for those shocknives

    You can use chalk on the rubber training knives.

    The Nok hard contact trainers are a good alternative for realistic training, I use it and have real stopping power, but are safe to use in real time training, you can see the material :

    I utilize the sharkee blades with the virtualblade and they work great.

    Here is a video of us getting after it.

    I was looking around the net to get detail for the sharkee. how does it stand up with sweat?

    I have had my two sets for about a year or so and while I bought extra chalk I have quite a bit left. [​IMG] We do wear white though so that it shows up well I do believe you could also wear black and have the same effect.

    Great!!! [​IMG] Because of the material ie. plastic they work great and will stand up to time for quite a while. [​IMG]

    Yes, I've had good luck with them even under sweaty conditions.
