These Chinese Butterfly swords are hand forged with excellent detailing and feature typical Cold Steel Build quality
Before World War II, Butterfly Swords were virtually unknown outside of China. When the Communists took control of mainland China that changed. The spread of Kung Fu has caused these esoteric swords to become quite popular. Butterfly Swords normally come in pairs that are nested together so they appear to be one sword instead of two. When drawn, they can be quickly separated and wielded in both hands to make wickedly effective weapons. These battle worthy blades are 15" long and 25/8" wide. The slip-proof grip features carefully selected hardwood covered with attractively braided cord. The D shaped guard has a long forward quillion, so it can both deflect and trap various opposing weapons.
