OverviewThis is a 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 10 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
