Why not use a dense wood and 'sleeve' it in a resilient polymer?

Interesting idea. How do you put a sleeve on something? Is it something that a layperson can do, or is it some industrial process?

If you were to try a piece of steel rod about 12mm diameter and slide it up inside a piece of garden hose you might have a cheap unit that won't do a serious injury. Maybe even a layer of silastic to glue it all together.
Once the piece of steel rod gets a few bends it could be straightened in a vice.
Hope this helps, Peter
