Overview
This is the one (and only) prototype custom pair of Nightmare Grind Wing Chun Butterfly Swords, designed by Jeffrey D. Modell who is, according to Wing Chun Illustrated magazine, "the premier designer of butterfly swords in the United States, and perhaps even the world - in fact, he has been credited with modernising the Wing Chun Butterfly Swords design."

The design was executed by Forge Master Ali of Iron Man Steel, the blacksmith who produced the Sasquatch Butterfly Swords.  The D guard was cast, and the blade completed via the stock removal method.  The parallel concave grinds on the cutting edge are a nightmare to grind and very challenging to do so superbly, as is the case here.  Each knife has a full tang with gorgeous cocobolo scales and red liners.  Each grip has 2 mosaic pins and 8 smaller pins.  The swords are expertly balanced and can be flipped between a forward and reverse grip.

These knives are deadly and intended for collectors or Wing Chun experts only. Comes with premium leather sheaths.  New from maker. Blade Steel: Bohler 440C Steel; HRC 58. D Guards of Cast AISI 304 Stainless Steel

ABOUT THE MAKER
Forge Master K. Ali
Modell Design LLC
Master Jeffrey Modell began studying martial arts 39 years ago. He is a 5th Degree Black Belt and Sensei in Isshinryu Karate, and author of the book "Isshinryu Textbook." He practices Kung Fu and has been called the premier designer of Wing Chun Butterfly Swords in the U.S. and perhaps the world by Wing Chun Illustrated magazine. His martial arts design credits include the famous integral Wing Chun knives, the Wing Chun BJD hybrid blade-style, EWC's flagship full tang line, the Hung Gar/Shaolin Long Stabbers favored by Grandmaster William Cheung?s Wing Chun lineage, and the Sasquatch-style Butterfly Swords featured in Blade Magazine. He has a special interest in knives for law enforcement and military use. Most Modell Design LLC blades are made by hand by Khurram Ali at his family forge (K. Ali -- Knifemaker). Mr. Ali is the third generation of a family of knife makers. His grandfather was a master of making folders. To teach him the business, he apprenticed to his father starting at age 12. One day his dad told him to make a knife on his own. Khurram told his dad he was not sure he could do it. His dad hit his hand with a hammer and told him "never believe you cannot do so." He has been striving for excellence ever since and is now the Forge Master. He is one of only a few experts in working with the difficult AISI 304 stainless steel and the most experienced maker of custom Butterfly Swords in the world.
