Cold Steel Butterfly Swords (CS88BF)
Prior to World War II, the Butterfly Sword was virtually unknown outside of southern China. This changed at the close of the 1940's, when the Communists took control of mainland China, forcing many Kung Fu masters to flee the oppressive regime and establish new schools elsewhere. Currently, due to the spread of Kung Fu, these once obscure swords have become quite popular. Typically, Butterfly Swords come in pairs that are cleverly nested together so they appear to be one sword not two. When they are drawn, they can be quickly separated and wielded in both hands to make wickedly effective chops, slashes and thrusts. Our battle worthy blades are 15" long and 2 5/8" wide. The handsome slip-proof grip features carefully selected hardwood covered with attractively braided cord. The "D" shaped guard has a long forward quillion, so it can both deflect and trap various opposing weapons.

Napoleon's cavalry was the bane of the European battlefield. While his horses were second string, his swords were absolutely first rate. They were manufactured in a state of the art factory dedicated to producing the finest edged weapons of the day.
The medium weight saber we offer is a cavalry trooper's chosen weapon. It posses excellent cutting and slashing capability and still remains useful for a thrust. In fact, it was so popular that it remained in use long after Napoleon's star had fallen and was wielded by both sides in our own Civil War.

However, this design is slightly different and makes for a far more effective and durable weapon.
