Wing Chun Butterfly Swords: Tango Tanto (First Made) (Collector Grade)

Modell Design LLC has come up with another crazy but functional design. This one is an oversized American tanto that has been heavily curved and features a single near full-blade hollow grind.

This particular Tango Tanto prototype has an ergonomic handle with a taller vertical profile (width as opposed to handle thickness) at the index and pinky finger points than on antique butterfly swords. A number of our clients prefer this for greater comfort and feel it makes retention easier during heavy impacts. The rear of the handle slants down to deal with the bifurcated nature of the fatty areas of the palms. On a perfectly horizontal handle the rear of palm pushes down on the rear of the handle, forcing the tip up and/or additional strain on the wrist to pressure the blade back to horizontal.
