Retribution Butterfly Swords - First Made Model

Jerry Hossom is one of the top U.S. custom knife makers and a true artistic national treasure. He very kindly gave Jeff Modell and Modell Design LLC permission to make Butterfly Swords based on his famous Retribution knife.

As Jeff explains it: "Jerry Hossom's design was already perfectly suited for BJD so all we did was scale them for Wing Chun making only those adjustments deemed necessary to accommodate a D-Guard. Because of the weight of the D-Guard we cannot make the blades as extraordinarily thin as his knives, nor do we imagine the quality of these swords is on par with his personal work but these are still superb." They are fast and sturdy.

This pair is our sterile (i.e., no logo) prototype. It was made by Forge Master K. Ali (who does the rest of our high-end work). The final limited version will be adjusted so in that sense this is an opportunity to own a singular piece of functional art.

The photos show the actual knives you will be receiving. Every knife is handmade and differs slightly, so we have provided the key measurements.
