If you see any of our limited edition/sold out models that you want, please email us - we are taking custom orders for the forge and can have any of our swords made for you. We will not restock these models, so you can only get them via special order.Learn more... (click to expand)
Some quick info on custom ordering older models: Depending on the model and your customizations, a single pair of swords will start in the $550-$600 price range to your door with FREE shipping and sheath. Exotic models are usually more due to the extra labor involved. You will have the ability to customize your pair some (steels, grinds, handles, mixing D-guards and blades, etc.) Both the raw materials and the quality of artistry have increased since the original pairs. When the forge makes a single pair of blades, it is more expensive than when they make 5-10 pairs and have some economy of size.
In our experience, it will take close to 3 months before you get your swords - if there are no COVID related delays. Shipping will be direct to your door from the forge via DHL. You may have to pay VAT/Customs fees in your country for import.
We have VERY LOW stock of weapons-grade swords at the moment, we apologize and the forge is working hard to make more without sacrificing quality. However, we prefer to do custom orders/requests for remaking old models. Instead of waiting to see if something comes back in stock (unlikely) we HIGHLY recommend you simply ask us to make whatever model you desire. We'd like to streamline this process for you so that you can order the sword you want with your custom options, and have it delivered cheaply and in a timely manner - the only way to do this is get more of you on our customer order program. Just email us with the sword model you want and the options you want (steel, sharpness, handle style, etc) and we'll get you a quote ASAP.
SWORD QUEUE: We have a large number of swords in production that will available on the site Dec 2020 - April 2021 (assuming no more crazy delays). These include: some Premium Line 10 and 15.5 inch blade models; a Tactical Combat Series of the Ip Man, Flagship, Domination, Tomb Warrior and and Premium lines; an Ultralight Skeletonized series; Lightweight versions of the Ip Man, Flagship, Domination, and Tomb Warrior lines; weapon-grade and tactical versions of the VTM Historical Stabber; and 2 new blade models (Training, Weapons, and Sifu grade versions). And, as always, if you want a sold-out model remade for you, that can be arranged - but don't expect them to be brought back in stock.
The swords represent the highest level of learning in Wing Chun Kung Fu and are one of the last things learned. As with everything in Wing Chun, the swords are supposed to be custom-made to fit the individual user and his/her style of fighting. The swords you use will not always be the same as your teacher or lineage but might be similar in function.
Each part of the sword has a purpose and how that part is made/designed greatly affects the use. The blade length (typically same as your forearm length), the blade shape (chopping, stabbing, hybrids of both), the grind/edge, the handles, the quillon (stopping, flipping, trapping, hybrids), the knuckle bow shape, etc are all very important considerations. This is one reason we routinely make/stock over 100 different models at any one time. But this also means that we cannot make very many of each model (1-5 of each is normally made), so if you see a sword that you like and fits your style, you should grab it while you can! (if you want to learn more, check out this .pdf we wrote with our designer Jeffrey Modell that explains all of this and much more)
We'd also like to thank Master Wong for his review of our swords:
Please Note: All sharp swords are sold as "display" or "collectors" items only! They are NOT suitable for training (it is too dangerous to train with sharp blades). They are only suited for collection and/or display.
