                Butterfly Sword
  The butterfly sword (húdié shuāng dāo) is a short dāo,
  or single-edged blade, originally from the South of
  China, though it has seen use in the North.

  The blade length is approximately that of the forearm,
  for easy concealment within the sleeves or inside boots,
  and for greater manoeuvrability to spin and rotate in
  close-quarters fighting.

  The butterfly sword is usually wielded in pairs.

  The sword has also a small cross guard to protect the
  hands of the wielder, which can be too small to block or
  hook an opponent's weapon.

  Butterfly swords are used in several Chinese martial
  arts, notably Wing Chun, Lau Gar and Hung Gar.
