[SOLD OUT!] Wing Chun Butterfly Swords: FIDO v1 (Collector) - Sharp
Fido D2 Butterfly Swords (Collector’s Series)

 
Click to View:


We made three Masters of this "Fido" FOS Chopper. One a Damascus blunt, two in D2 with a gorgeous matt combat finish. This item is a Collector Grade pair of fully functional Master of Modell Design LLC's new "Fido" chopper in combat matt finish 8 mm thick Boehler 440C weapons-grade steel. The blade is a drop point style with a guppy belly intended to be "Far Out Stuff" cool. EWC views them as a more Wing Chun lineage variation on the Collector's Series Sasquatch theme since the spine is flat for folks who find a long swage unhelpful. These swords are real weapons and very dangerous. The photos and measurements are of the other Sifu Grade pair, which was spoken for on receipt (i.e., your pair would be a higher standard than that in the photo). Learn More >>

Fido D2 Butterfly Swords Collector Grade

We made three Masters of this "Fido" FOS Chopper. One a Damascus blunt, two in D2 with a gorgeous matte combat finish. This item is a fully functional Master of Modell Design LLC's new "Fido" chopper in combat matte finish 8 mm thick Bohler D2 weapons-grade steel. The blade is a drop point style with a guppy belly intended to be "Far Out Stuff" cool. EWC views them as a more Wing Chun lineage variation on the Collector's Series Sasquatch theme since the spine is flat for folks who find a long swage unhelpful. These swords are real weapons and very dangerous. The photos and measurements are of the other Sifu Grade pair, which was spoken for on receipt (i.e., your pair would be a higher standard than that in the photo). We opened that box first, the other after the photos were taken.

Why should you buy swords named Fido? Blame the name on Modell Design, it just struck them that this blade would sink its teeth into something. Seriously, 8 mm D2 is a lot of steel to make into a sword, and this is custom quality German steel.

For those of you with chopper lineages, although the balance point measures out as normal somehow these just feel more like a chopper with weight biased further down the blade. For those of you who do not want a chopper, we recommend you pass on these because of that feel.
