Weapons - Butterfly Wings  蝴蝶翅膀
Versions taught: best described as a hybrid between a staff, which can strike and block with both ends as well as the middle, and a sword, which can attack with sharpened edges or the point. This rare weapon, predominantly seen in Mantis styles, has two sword blades and two crescent moon hand guards. In the poses below a spin has just been completed so one hand is still outside the guard.
Recommendations: can be learned at any time. Cost: $80. The Sun and Moon Spear (below left; also known as  the double hands pull knife) is 56 inches from tip to tip and very similar
