The waiting list for the Butterfly Sword has now closed due to extreme demand.
The tales called Butterfly a blade of betrayal, for it is said that in the hands of the uncertain swinging the sword brings with it a promise of disaster.
Whether through its treacherous balance or its deceptive weight, the unprepared have been known to pay in blood and bone. Yet in the grip of the confident, few tools have proven more valuable or deadly.
To use the blade properly it is said one must trust it completely, allowing it to wield the user. Follow its weight as it weaves a legato line with the enemy; feel its speed as it meets every staccato strike with one of its own.
For the faithful, permitting the Butterfly to lead the course of combat will reward the warrior with a way into the heart of all foes.
In close collaboration with the DOTA 2 game designers at Valve, the physical Butterfly Sword has been designed by the same Weta artists and craftspeople who work on our movies, using the same techniques we use to make screen props for movies like The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, District 9 and Avatar.
It is made from urethane and painstakingly hand painted to make an outstanding display piece for your wall.
In the box with your Butterfly Sword you will also find a unique DOTA 2 in-game item, designed by the crew at Weta:
Hero: Drow Ranger
Weapon: Monarch Bow design based upon the Butterfly sword
Lore: A relic from a hegemony long since passed, the Monarch rewards those who value lethal precision and skill over blunt force. As graceful in action as at rest, it compliments perfectly the coolest of heads under the deadliest of circumstances.
The range also includes the awesome Axe statue.
