BUICK YIP v9 - Hybrid 12 - Blunt - Black
(READ PRIOR TO PURCHASE!)
If you need a quality pair of training swords at a great price, then look no further.
These swords are the latest from a collaboration between Buick Yip and Everything Wing Chun that goes back several years. This is the 9th model of Buick Yip swords (of which EWC has helped collaborate on the last 7 models). Like all the others, this sword is a limited edition that will sell out. Only 100 are available.
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 satin, glossy, or black finish.
The Chinese characters on the swords say "Wing Chun Passed Down Through Direct Linage. 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 $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 just need a cheaper 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.
Blade length: 30 cm / 11.8 in
Overall length: 42 cm / 16.53 in
Blade width (at hand-guard): 6.5 cm / 2.56 in
Blade width (at widest point): 7.5 cm / 2.95
Sword weight: 1.5 kg // 3.30 lbs per pair (.75 kg // 1.65 lbs per sword)
Blade Steel: 420 Stainless
D-Guard: Stainless Steel
These blades have a ricasso. They have full handles for safety in training and the edge is 1-2mm thick and blunt. The tips are blunted for safety as well. These swords can be flipped.

Binding Agreement: The terms of this Agreement govern your purchase and/or possession of the product (and all transferees), which is a pair of Butterfly Swords (hereafter the term "Product" refers to one or both swords, as applicable). If you had no opportunity to review these terms prior to purchase or receipt and decline to be bound, return the Product to your seller or transferor immediately.
Assumption of Risk, Indemnity, Representations: This Product is a real weapon (even if the edge is blunt) and therefore inherently dangerous at all times. Do not use (as used herein "use" and its variations include but are not limited to martial arts practice, demonstrations, combat, cleaning, transport, display, other storage and possession) except after proper training, under expert supervision, and with great care. Do not use for two-person training. If the edge is sharp, use for display purposes only. You understand that using the Product is an inherently dangerous activity. You voluntarily assume the risk of all personal injury (including but not limited to maiming and death of self and others) and damages resulting from use of the Product for training, combat or otherwise. You hereby agree to release and hold harmless (i) Everything Wing Chun, LLC and its member(s), owner(s), and personnel ("EWC"), Aaron Cantrell, (ii) Modell Design LLC, its member(s), owner(s) and personnel, Jeffrey D. Modell, and (iii) their supplier(s) and reseller(s) (hereafter "Us"), from any and all liability and negligence resulting in personal injuries, death or damages, losses, fees and expenses, including actual attorneys' fees, arising from use of the Product ("Damages"). For example, if you stab yourself cleaning or practicing with them, drop one on your foot, chop a friend's finger off, poke your eye out, the swords break and you get hurt, a child picks them up and gets hurt, or whatever, you agree that is your own fault and won't hold Us responsible. This Agreement clearly and unambiguously exculpates Us from even our own negligence and the consequences thereof, but not gross negligence or intentional misbehavior.
In plain language, assuming we are not grossly negligent or evil, you won't sue Us successfully for injury or damages resulting from the swords for any reason what-so-ever, and we really mean it. Your sole remedy for problems is the Limited Warranty below.
You represent to Us that (i) you are at least 18 years of age, (ii) the Product is lawful in your local jurisdiction, (iii) you will use the Product in compliance with all applicable laws, and (iv) you will not to loan or transfer the Product to anyone who does not agree to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Us harmless from any and all Damages arising from or related to your breach of these representations.
Limited Warranty: The only warranty on this product is a Limited Warranty against defects in materials and workmanship from EWC in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied, including fitness for any intended use, subject to the following terms and conditions. The Limited Warranty extends for 30 days from the date of purchase. If you purchased this product directly from EWC, EWC will replace, repair, or refund the price paid, the option at its discretion. These are the only remedies for any warranty claim or other claim, including but not limited to Damages, available from Us; provided, however, if you purchased this product from an authorized reseller, we will recommend they offer a similar 30 day Limited Warranty protection. Your claim must include original proof of purchase showing seller, price and date of purchase.
Not Product Defects: This product was made by hand. Normal variations in construction, appearance and weight that are characteristic of the materials or hand work are not defects. Minor pitting is normal for our cast and hot drop forged D Guards and hot drop forged integral swords. High carbon steel and good stainless steel can corrode, pit, rust and tarnish. Water and humid conditions promote these. Never store a knife or sword in or near a leather sheath as the tanning acids or vapors can cause rapid corrosion. Brass tarnishes over time. The handle scales are a wood product and therefore can expand or contract when exposed to varying humidity and temperature (though, depending on the materials used, they may have been stabilized with glue or resin reducing the impact). The above are natural characteristics of the workmanship or materials and not product defects.
Advice on Care: These are high-end swords made with weapons grade stainless or "semi-stainless" steel that will rust absent proper care. We recommend cleaning them with rubbing alcohol after each use or touch, waxing with Renaissance Wax (or a similar non-acidic wax) as needed, and periodically stripping, cleaning and re-waxing them. Keep dry and do not store in damp or humid area, or in direct sunlight. For more info read the full article Combating Rust on Swords ( June 28, 2011).
Neglect: Blade tests shown on Everything Wing Chun's website are dangerous and should not be duplicated. Any knife/sword can be broken or damaged if subjected to sufficient abuse. These destructive tests CONSTITUTE GROSS ABUSE OF A SWORD and will void all warranties.
Law and Forum: This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Wyoming, USA without regard to its conflict of law rules, and any dispute shall be finally resolved by the courts of the State of Wyoming. You agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of said state.
Blue Pencil Clause: If any provision herein is held to be unenforceable, then this Agreement shall be construed or deemed amended to the extent necessary to render the otherwise unenforceable provision, and the rest of the Agreement, valid and enforceable. If a court declines to so construe or amend this Agreement, the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision(s) of this Agreement shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions, which shall be enforced as if the offending provision(s) had not been included in this Agreement.
