They are regarded to hold the most versatility and balance, of offensive and defensive capabilities, of any Chinese weapon. A single edged sword, the butterfly sword is approximately the length of a human forearm to allow for greater manoeuvrability when spinning and rotating during close-quarters fighting. Made from a smooth, weighted, aluminium, the blade features an engraved butterfly on either side. The rubber handle provides a secure and solid grip when held. Total length is 50cm, with a 39cm blade and 11cm handle. Sold as a pair. 800g each.
