Its a pair of Chinese Shuangguo (雙鉤) Hook swords. They were mainly used by Martial Arts/Kung Fu practicers and street artists in the late Qing period. The old antique examples are well made and have sharp edges all over. The crecent moon shape blade on top is attached with two bars. The handle is mostly covered with silk wrappings.

This pair is, as mentioned above, fairly recent and crudely made.

All the best, Peter
