Electric swords are high technological weapons utilized by the members of the Dark Hand when they were still wealthy enough to have access to them. The blades are collapsible shafts that emit an electrical current. When they're in collapsed state, the six-pointed hilts are closed, and the handles are easy to conceal. The blades are able to cut through solid steal like a knife through hot butter. However, windshield wipers seem to be able to stand against them.
The Enforcers use electric blades several times against Jackie, including their first fight. However, even they're not enough to give an edge against Jackie's superior reflexes. Valmont also possesses an electric dagger stored within his cane, as well as a fake tooth that draws the cane to the tooth's location when activated.
