Butterfly Swords (or Eight-Cutting Swords) are believed to have been developed by Shaolin monks as a concealable defensive weapon, used to disable rather than kill, which was prohibited by the monk’s code of conduct. The use of butterfly swords has since been honed to a fine art by martial artists, particularly the Wing Chun & Hung Gar styles of Southern China, where precision and two-sword coordination are emphasized. The CAS Hanwei Butterfly Swords Sets feature high-carbon tempered steel blades with traditional dragon engraving. The SH2067 set features leather wrapped grips and steel guards, decorated in a dragon motif. This same motif is repeated on the fittings of the double scabbard. This set includes a wall plaque for display of the swords.

Made by Hanwei.
