About Us


Modell Design LLC specializes in high quality bladed weaponry, including custom designs.  We (referring to a one-person Michigan corporation) specialize in Butterfly Swords and military knives, and recently started making high-end Karate Sai.  If an item is designed by Modell Design LLC, it is designed in Michigan.  Any production is outsourced either in the USA or overseas; custom clients choose.  The top international maker of high-end Butterfly Swords is Forge Master K. Ali, in Wazirabad Pakistan.  He mostly uses imported Bohler Steel but the first run of Sai were made with French steel.  We source most work to him to get the benefit of his world-class quality with overseas pricing but would be very pleased to source custom designs in the USA if the client is willing to pay the expense.  We also carry some Busse and Randall knives in inventory for sale at market prices; ask if you do not see them listed.
