Butterfly Swords – Straight Edge Style
Butterfly Swords – Straight Edge Style – Glossy Finish
Straight Edge Style Butterfly Swords – Glossy Finish
These swords are the latest from a collaboration between Buick Yip and Everything Wing Chun that goes back several years. This is the 8th model of Buick Yip swords (of which EWC has helped collaborate on the last 6 models). Like all the others, this sword is a limited edition that will sell out. Only 30 are available.
The main differences in this model and the last one is that that handle is more comfortable and the tang is fully welded to the metal handle interior, keeping the swords very strong. This model comes in a satin, glossy, or black finish. There are also 2 models – a chopper with a belly (same as last model) and a model with a straight edge, which many lineages prefer.
The Chinese characters on the swords say “Wing Chun” on one sword and “Bart Jaam Dao” (8 Slash Swords / Butterfly Swords) on the other.
Lastly, 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 $199 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 do not want to have to upkeep the blades, or just need a cheap 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.
