Ultimate Wing Chun Butterfly Swords - Full-Tang OGA Line Model
Special Order: This is a special custom order for a pair of our OGA line of swords. The wait time is currently 5-8 months. We are proud to offer these swords at this price/wait time. It is a fraction of the cost/wait to get a high-quality custom sword made anywhere else. Your order will include shipping to your door, but not any VAT/Border/Import taxes.
This listing is a work in progress. While you can find what most of the options are by looking at other swords on the site some options we don't have pictures of (yet). Please email with any questions.
TRAINING VS WEAPONS-GRADE:
We have temporarily added a "training-grade" option to the custom orders. This is temporary while we still are waiting on stock from the forge. Weapons-grade has a true full tang, refined polish/finish, high quality construction, fit, feel, balance, etc. Training-grade is hidden partial tang welded in place. Training grade has an unrefined polish, is not tapered, has a thicker 420 Stainless steel blade, smaller D-Guard thickness and handle thickness (so you can wrap the handle), blunt 3mm edge, etc. Overall it is a quicker and cheaper construction and slightly different d-guards, etc. Generally speaking - you don't want to custom order training grade. We do production runs of training swords and TRY to keep them in stock. If it's a sword we have in our queue you are better off waiting for it (email us to ask). If it is not, or you need a special size or etc, then go ahead. Please try to pick only the options for training grade all the way down. (steels, handles, pins, etc) until we get a new listing just for training grade orders. Mixing and matching is generally not to your advantage. We designed the training swords the way we did for specific reasons.
OGA (Other Government Agency) Butterfly Swords - Sharp
These unusually long butterfly swords were designed in conjunction with a prominent Kung Fu San Soo Sifu. The blade is patterned off Modell Design LLC's "Other Government Agency" Number 2 fighting knife only a lot bigger! Extensive hollow grinding keeps them light and deadly despite their size.
The straight handles are ergonomically shaped for comfort and retention. The swage is blunt to allow flipping to the reverse grip position. There is a large choil intended to serve as a good landing spot for incoming weapons like a pole.
Every knife is hand-made of professionally tempered weapon's grade Bohler blade steel. The photos are of a representative pair.
