Nightmare Grind Wing Chun Butterfly Swords (Collector's Series)
Nightmare Grind Wing Chun Butterfly Swords (Collector’s Series)
These swords are a very limited collector’s edition Butterfly Sword featuring multiple grinds on the cutting edge that can make it a nightmare to grind. The two grinds here are a side-by-side set of hollow/concave cutting edge grinds that are very difficult to do well. The blade steel is highly polished Böhler 440C weapons-grade stainless steel (the same kind of steel sold by knife supply houses to U.S. custom knife makers). These high-quality collectors swords are real weapons and very dangerous.
