The Deer Horn Knives are a unique weapon originating from the Chinese Internal Martial Art of Bagua Zhang.

The multi-bladed Deer Horn Knives are also known as: Mandarin Duck Blades, Deer Antler Knives, Bagua Deer Hook Swords 八卦鹿鉤劍, Mandarin-Duck Sun & Moon Axes and Yuan Yang Yue or Zi Wu Yuan Yang Yue.

Deer Horn Knives are designed for use against multiple attackers and are most greatly utilized for countering and disarming traditional weapons of varying lengths too fierce to combat or control with bare hands: the spear, staff, saber, sword...


All traditional weapons are an extension of the body... the Deer Horn Knives accentuate the empty hand Baguazhang palms and applications with minimum accommodation.

The implementation of the Deer Horn Knives is remembered by the following terms:

八卦鹿鉤劍 勾掛擒拿 拉割挑扎 削攢劈剁 抹撩帶化.

Translated as; Bagua Deer Hook Swords, Hooking, Sliding, Seizing, Controlling, Pulling, Cutting, Picking, Smashing, Paring, Drilling, Chopping, Mincing, Brushing, Smearing, Leading, Carrying, Neutralizing.
