Sword Measurements: Overall approx 17 1/4" inches (44cm). Blade approx 12.25 inches (31cm). Belly approx 2 5/8th inches. Base approx 2 1/8th inches. Handle approx 4 inches (10.25 cm).
Sword Weight: Combat Weight - Each sword weighs approx 850 g (or 1.87 lbs) on average (this weight will vary because different blade steels are used, and all blades are hand made/ground). Paired swords are generally within 10 grams (0.35 oz) of each other. Because they are hand made, sword pairs can vary in weight up to approx 50 grams in either direction.

Notes: These swords are hand-made. No two swords are perfectly identical. Small variations in the measurements are typical. Please read #2 under "Things you should know" and "Not Product Defects" under the warranty for more information.

Case/Sheath: A free sheath will be provided by EWC for these swords. Sheaths are offered as free gifts and are given to you "as-is". Blades that are sharp come with a leather sheath that have a nylon interior. Blunt blades come with a nylon sheath. See the pictures for a better idea of the sheath that will come with your pair. One should not store swords in leather sheaths long term because the chemicals in leather can corrode/tarnish metal.

Tomb Warrior Line:

This line of swords is based around the D-Guard found in an ancient Wing Chun warrior's tomb in China. We know the swords are from a Wing Chun man due to the "Baat Jarm Dao" inscription on the swords as well as a manual found with them. While the information and pictures of the tomb's contents remain a Chinese state secret that will only be released many years from now, we have gotten confirmation of their existence.

The only real difference in this line compared to the Flagship/Premium lines is the D-Guard shape, the fact they have 1/2 handles to fit together better in 1 hand and use a Trapping-Only quillon. The D-Guards on this line are more square and have a spike on the bottom edge to prevent blocked weapons from slipping under your sword and hitting you. They also make your punches a lot more penetrating.

Those that are familiar with the WingTsun lineage swords might notice that the D-Guard is very similar to those used by Leung Ting's lineage. In fact, Grandmaster Ting based his design around the same ancient warrior's swords. They are not his original invention. Many WingTsun practitioners will really love our models of this sword.
