Most famous among Wing Chun practitioners, but also used by several other Southern Chinese styles of Gongfu such as Choy Li Fut, Hung Gar, White Crane and many others, these fast and powerful chopping shortswords are part cleaver, part knucke-duster and incredibly effective in the hands of a skilled practitioner. Each style uses them in a different way but the basic principle is to defend with alternative hands and attack at the same time in a flurry of strikes and chops until the opponent is overwhelmed.

The origin of these exotic swords is hard to trace, but most scholars trace their origin to the 18th century but were more common from the 19th century onward.

The blades of these swords are the best of any Butterfly Swords on the market, differentially hardened with a clearly defined temper line, at 1.8lbs with a point of balance just over an inch from the handle, it is both fast and forceful - not to mention versatile - as the blade has a very keen edge and false edge for deep thrusting. Amazing value.

My tours in China were martial arts tours visiting many different styles of martial arts. Visited the Northern and Southern temples. I had meant the blacksmith and thus started my education and journey collecting hand-forged steel swords and other weapons to understand the different steel used for their specific purposes. My personal preference is 1095 because of the strength, weight, and truly beautiful artwork. When I saw the Ryujin 1095 carbon Steel butterfly swords it brought back memories. When they arrived, they were packed in the same boxes my swords came in when purchased in CHINA. Unwrapping and opening the box, I knew this would be super quality. The leather sheaths are made and stitched very well.
The pros are 1095 Stell made, the Hilt and the blade balance feels like a perfect balance allowing the wielder to manipulate the blade effectively, whether cutting, slashing, thrusting, or parrying.
The only cons I would mention is, I will have then taken to a professional sharpening service to razor sharpen the steel. Sometimes it isn’t a good idea because one mistake is made in training with them, and a body part will fly to the ground. So, focus is a must. They come to Singel so you must buy two and they do not fit together as other styles of butterfly swords. Not a problem for me but beware of this.
I would recommend the Ryujin 1095 Carbon Steel Butterfly Sword.
