These are the models of the 11.5 inch Stabber blade on the Tomb Warrior Line of swords.
See bottom of page for more details on the Stabber Blades and Tomb Warrior Line.
These Wing Chun Butterfly Swords have a blade in the "Narrowing Stabber" style.
The Narrowing Stabber is mainly used for piercing opponents. The
narrower blade and sharper tip facilitate this. These blades are good
for stabbing and slicing, but sacrifice some chopping ability. You will
notice that the top edge of the blade (the spine) is also angled
downward. This give the sword more piercing power as the tip is in
alignment with the handle and wrist. This is very similar to how they
made the swords in the Red Boat (war) era of Wing Chun's history. These
are lighter and faster than the choppers. Our 11.5" stabber was based on a
historical triangular design rather than using one of the ugly modern
rectangles that had no precedent in historical China (and are just a low
cost manufacturing innovation).
The Tomb Warrior line of swords is based around the D-Guard found in an ancient Wing
Chun warrior's tomb in China. We know the swords are from a Wing Chun
man due to the "Baat Jarm Dao" inscription on the swords as well as a
manual found with them. While the information and pictures of the tomb's
contents remain a Chinese state secret that will only be released many
years from now, we have gotten confirmation of their existence.
The only real difference in this line compared to the Flagship/Premium
lines is the D-Guard shape, the fact they have 1/2 handles to fit
together better in 1 hand and use a Trapping-Only quillon. The D-Guards
on this line are more square and have a spike on the bottom edge to
prevent blocked weapons from slipping under your sword and hitting you.
They also make your punches a lot more penetrating.
Those that are familiar with the WingTsun lineage swords might notice
that the D-Guard is very similar to those used by Leung Ting's lineage.
In fact, Grandmaster Ting based his design around the same ancient
warrior's swords. They are not his original invention. Many WingTsun
practitioners will really love our models of this sword.
The "Tough-As-Hell" Edition is a hard-core training and combat sword and
is the 3rd series of our Flagship line of blades. The "Tough-As-Hell"
Edition uses a hand-hammered combat-ready carbon spring steel that is
both flexible (so the blades will not snap) and strong. When testing
edge-vs-edge striking on other steels our 9260 hammered combat steel
performed the best. That said: We NEVER recommend any sword for weapon
vs weapon training because ALL weapons fail at some point and can cause
massive injury. While these are capable blades, NEVER go steel on steel
with your swords. No matter what you are hitting - these swords are the
toughest of any other production butterfly sword we have found on the
open market, and the toughest we have produced to date (2013).
