Mostly attributed with southern Kung Fu styles but have been found throughout China. Even though they are called Wing Chun Butterfly Knives, other kung styles use them such as Hung Gar Kung Fu, Choy Li Fut and Shaolin Temple Kung Fu. Traditionally every pair of Wing Chun Butterfly Knives would be made to measure for the individual practitioner. Depending on Kung Fu style, ability, size, etc would all effect the shape, size and design of the weapon.
Not to be confused with the Balisong Knife, which is also commonly called a Butterfly Knife
Unless you have a skilled blacksmith to hand, knowledgeable in Wing Chun Butterfly Knives, you’ll probably have to make do with a modern standard pair like these. The blades are dull for practice and would often only be sharpened for the second half of the blade so when used for blocking it won’t break the edge. The guard extends around the hand, so can be used for blocking, striking and protecting the hand. This also extends over the blades into, what in English is called, a quilion. This can be used to spin the knives around your hand into a reverse position as well as trapping attacking weapons and disarming.
These Wing Chun Knives come as a pair and are made from an unsharpened rigid steel. The handles are wrapped with a artificial leather grip.
“Most Wing Chun schools these days will teach Wing Chun Butterfly Knives to some extent. They are a great training tool and the lessons learnt with them throughout your entire practice.”

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:
