Hanwei Butterfly Swords - SH2067
Hanwei Butterfly Swords
Butterfly Swords (aka 8-Cutting Swords) are believed to have been developed by Shaolin monks as a concealable defensive weapon, used to disable rather than kill, which was prohibited by the monk`s code of conduct. The use of butterfly swords has since been honed to a fine art by martial artists, particularly the Wing Chun & Hung Gar styles of Southern China, where precision and two-sword coordination are emphasized. Our Butterfly Swords Set (SH2067) by CAS/Hanwei is a high-quality set featuring high-carbon tempered steel sharp blades with traditional dragon scroll patterning, leather wrapped grips and steel guards decorated in a dragon motif. This same motif is repeated on the fittings of the double scabbard. A wall plaque is included for display of the swords.
