Ultimate Wing Chun Butterfly Swords - TRAINING Line: 5-Sifu

These were designed based on input from Sifu Carmelino Huang Guiao II and four other instructors from the Grandmaster William Cheung lineage. Grandmaster Cheung had said that he liked the Hung Gar Long Stabbers but wanted something a bit more pointy. We think these fit the bill.

Design:
These training-grade swords are the first butterfly swords (that we know of) expertly designed specifically for the Grandmaster William Cheung Traditional Wing Chun lineage. They will stab, cut, and execute a back cut. The blade is Searle's bowie style in the format made popular and done so well by custom knife maker Bruce Bump. The D-Guard is an entirely new trapper design intended to improve both trapping and hand protection. Since these swords do not flip, there is no wasted space in the knucklebow. The butt is rounded and heavy steel to facilitate bashing. The ergonomic handle is straight to accommodate the back cut and percussion chops versus armor.

The scallop under the quillon is to assist trapping; it will not fit a hand. These are trapping only!



Every knife is handmade and differs slightly, so we have provided the approximate key measurements.
