Butterfly Swords - Buick Yip and EWC v12 - Hybrid Style - Glossy

If you need a quality pair of training swords at a great price, then look no further. If you want an affordable and solid blade for training, then these are the ones we recommend. They are good for 95% of training needs (everything except weapon vs weapon or sparring) and easy to maintain.

These swords are the latest from a collaboration between Buick Yip and Everything Wing Chun that goes back several years. This is the 12th model of Buick Yip swords (of which EWC has helped collaborate on the last 10 models). Like all the others, this sword is a limited edition that will sell out. Only 115 are available. It might be the last one Buick Yip makes.

The main difference in this model and the last one is simply the handle shape and size (on the last model it was a little small for most people, so this was corrected). (In the video below Sifu Tommy is reviewing V9 of this sword (not V12). V12 has thicker handles.

This is a full tang sword so the handle and blade are one piece and will never come apart. No other sword on the market is full-tang at this price. (As a matter of fact, only our high-end models do this, and no other swords on the market from any maker has this feature). This model comes in a glossy or black finish.

The Chinese characters on the swords say "Wing Chun Passed Down Through Direct Lineage. Chinese Martial Art Regains its Power" on the other. (also translated as Chinese Martial Art's Influence Prevails). That is the same quote that is outside the Ving Tsun Athletic Association (VTAA) in Hong Kong.

We wanted a price range that was affordable for you. Our Flagship line of swords (priced at $399+) are high-end Sifu-Level swords and an absolute steal at $399 (these swords easily sell for $800+). Even so, we know that $400 is a bit steep in this economy, so we wanted to introduce this mid-level sword for a great price. At $209 we think these swords are the best production sword on the market for under $250. It is the only solid training blade production sword on the market (out side of EWC's other swords, of course). If you don't need the high-quality of our flagship line of swords or just need a cheaper and solid blade for training, then these are the ones we recommend.

Beware imitations! We are the designer and only sellers of this sword - but there are a number of copycat models on the market of our and Buick's swords! We appreciate the fact that everyone loves our designs and wants to make copycat versions of our bags and swords, but don't be fooled.
