In contrast to most Chinese martial arts, the minimalist kung fu style of Wing Tsun teaches only a select few weapons: the long pole and the double butterfly knives. These beautiful pieces, presented in a shared scabbard, are characterized primarily by the artful – but not impractical – shaping of their brass guards and the luminous shine of their polished stainless steel blades (very stiff).
The combat variant of these popular Wing Tsun weapons sports much thicker blades and a sturdier, heavier overall weapon.
