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, these are undoubtedly the next best thing. Made from Hand forged Damascus steel, not only do the knives look amazing but are super practical and ready for Wing Chun practice. The blades are dull for obvious reasons and traditionally would often only be sharpened for the second half of the blade anyway so when used for blocking it won’t break the edge. They have brass handles with a wooden inlaid flush for a smooth and comfortable grip.
The Hand Forged Wing Chun Butterfly Knives also come with a Thick leather case that keeps the knives separate from each other when transporting them around. The brass guard or hook 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 are no joke, you won’t believe how good they are, the pictures don’t do them justice.”

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:
