The twin Butterfly Swords of Wing Chun Kung Fu are fast and decisive striking weapons and in skilled hands they give their bearer everything needed to triumph over a wide and diverse array of opposing weapons. The knuckle-guards give good protection to the hands and they also can double as knuckle-dusters when up close and the large and extended back-quillon is a fine tool for deflection and entrapment and a quick twist of the hand when an opposing weapon is caught in the quillon can slow or stall an opposing weapon in a bind. In such a situation against a larger weapon the Butterfly Sword finds itself in a surprising advantage as the proximity of the bind to the hands of the wielder allows them greater control over a larger opponents weapon to gain a momentary advantage in a duel and a moment for a strike from the second twin sword.
Additionally, the Butterfly Swords are cunningly crafted so that they can be sheathed side by side as the the flat-edge on the inside of both hilts allow for them to be worn in a manner that takes up a minimal amount of space and can also conceal the presence of two knives to an unwary or presumptive foe.
This pair of Chinese Butterfly Swords has wide blades of tempered and sharpened 420 stainless steel which can slice and cut with deep and decisive strikes in quick succession. The hilts are cast from durable brass and the grip scales are black dyed wood Pakkawood. Included is a tough sheath of thick stitched leather which can hold both swords together. A retaining strap of leather with a brass button secures the swords into place.
