Randall Sasquatch-Style "Light" Wing Chun Butterfly Swords (Boehler Uddeholm D-2 Tool Steel) (Sifu Series)

This is one of Modell Design LLC’s new Sasquatch Lightweight models that shaves a bit of weight off the original design for easier handling. Each knife weighs roughly 6 ounces less than with the first two generations and continues to feature superior balance.

The knives shown are what you will get so if you have any questions ask them before ordering.

Blade Thickness: Approx. 5 mm maximum
All measurements and weights are approximate.

Description of this model:

Perhaps the most difficult to make Randall knife is the big Sasquatch re-curve designed by Randall Dealer Doug Kenefick. Doug, after noting his design was inspired by the work of Rod Chappel and Gil Hibben, gave Jeff Modell of (Modell Design LLC) his blessing to adapt the Sasquatch blade for Wing Chun chopper-style Butterfly Swords.

When first crafted, Modell Design LLC’s Sasquatch Butterfly Swords knives had the most complicated set of grinds ever done on modern Chinese Butterfly Swords (and any surviving antiques that have come to our attention). It is extraordinarily difficult to achieve the lengthy intersection line of the primary grind and long swage. First place for difficulty has been given up to Modell Design LLC’s Nightmare Grind Butterfly Swords and their concave/convex Bowie Lt. design, but these are still a BJD milestone.


Specs Common to all swords of this model:

Sword Construction: Conventional
Blade Style: Unique/Custom - Kukri

Blade Grind: Very wide Hollow Grind culminating in wide sharp "V" edge, swage
Ricasso: Yes
Choil: Yes
Tang: Full tang

Quillion Design: Hybrid (can flip and trap)
Knuckle Bow Design: Rounded
Handle Type: Full Handles
Grip Style: Full handles with two concavities (i.e., index finger indent and hollow area for remaining fingers)
Balance Point: Conventional to permit flipping

Sheath: You will get left and right leather sheaths, each with a retainer strap. These are made of thick leather and very sturdy (as opposed to a traditional historical soft and floppy sheath). Do not store swords in leather sheaths long term because the chemicals in leather can corrode/tarnish metal.

Designed by: Modell Design LLC, Michigan, USA
Made By: Swords made by Forge Master K. Ali at M/S Ironman Steel at his family-owned Blacksmithy established 1968 in Pakistan. He is the third generation and, in our opinion, the foremost maker of high-end butterfly swords in the world. All sheaths, scabbards and soft cases are outsourced.

Shipping: These swords are drop shipped by Modell Design, they are not shipped by Everything Wing Chun. International shipments will use USPS Express Mail, or GXG, which is FedEx and the Post Office together (It is faster and safer). Domestic shipments use UPS ground.
