Fido D2 Butterfly Swords Sifu Grade (Sifu's Series)

We have a pair of Sifu Grade Fido Choppers, with a compound French curve hollow grind and flat grind finishing with a strong tree chopper "V" shaped grind at the cutting edge. Strictly speaking these are not blunts but as a general matter you need to apply pressure for them to cut as opposed to a guarantee of cutting your finger with a light touch sharp. They come in a combat matt finish 8 mm thick Bohler D2 weapons-grade tool 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 Sasquatch theme since the spine is flat for folks who find a long swage unhelpful. These swords are real weapons and very dangerous.

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 steel.


Specific Specs For This Sword:

For more info please read our blog post: Everything Wing Chun Butterfly Swords Guide

(Wing Chun Butterfly Swords are also known as: Wing Chun Butterfly Knives, Bart Jarm Do, Bot Jaam Dao, Hudiedao, Eight-Slash Swords, 8-Cut Swords, etc)

Sword Type: Individual Full Handles.

Blade Style: "Far Out Stuff" (FOS) Chopper.

Blade Length: Approx 14 1/8" " (35.7 cm). Measured from tip to where the blade enters the top of the D Guard hilt. This is not exactly along the spine because the spine curves down near the tip. D Guards are hand ground so may differ slightly and impact measure.
Total Length: Add 5" to blade length so approx 19" (48.3 cm).

Sheath: You will get two heavy leather sheaths, one for each sword. They are embossed and have a tan brownish color. Do not store swords in leather sheaths long term because the chemicals in leather can corrode/tarnish metal.
Comments: Tiny pit (about the diameter of normal sized paper clip rod or smaller) on one blade, cosmetic issue. Great feel chopping.

Designed by: Modell Design LLC
