Deer Horn Knives probably have more names than techniques associated with them, some of the names include:
- Deer Antler Knives
- Mandarin Duck Blades
- Meridian Axes
- Crescent Moon Knives
- Deer Hook Swords
- Mandarin Duck Sun and Moon Axes
- Yuan Yang Yue
- Zi Wu Yan Yang Yue
to name a few.
They have long been associated with Bagua Zhang, an internal Chinese martial art. They are small enough to conceal within traditional Chinese Clothing and have four tips that could be sharpen and edges all over the place. One of the central curves is wrapped for hand grip, which protects the hand from attacks.
They would be used as an extension of the hand in fighting, similar to how a knuckleduster might be used, and would defend against swords and spears.
“Most Deer Horn Knives these days aren’t how you expect, they’re a little rough, but are fit for purpose. One’s that feel fully ‘traditional’ are a little hard to come by. While you’re searching these will do you just fine.”

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you.
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS.
UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that.
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
