Fido D2 Butterfly Swords - Blunts

These swords are Fido Choppers, each with a compound French curve hollow grind and flat grind finishing with a strong tree chopper "V" shaped grind at the cutting edge. 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, this is a lot of steel to make into a sword, and this is custom quality steel.

For those of you with lineages that like the chopping/cutting motions these should be a joy to handle. The balance point is normal, yet 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.
