Wing Chun Butterfly Swords: DOMINATION v1 - Chopper 14 440C - HG Blunt
(READ PRIOR TO PURCHASE!)
Ultimate Wing Chun Butterfly Swords - Full Tang DOMINATION Line
Based on the survey of over 160 Sifus in June 2014, this is the first of a series of swords that top Wing Chun Sifus said they wanted. The Domination line swords are true combat-grade weapons. They feature full exposed tangs, powerful squared D-Guards, perfect balance, straight handles, flipping and trapping ability, top grade weapon steels, and a variety of blade options. These swords are combat-weight and not for the weak or timid. If you need a sword to Dominate your foe, then this is the choice for you. Only a limited number of each model will be made.

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: EWC is providing a free nylon-lined leather 2-in1 case ($50 Retail value) with these swords. The case is offered for free and is not covered under any warranty and none are available for replacement. Do not store the blades in leather cases as it can corrode the blades over time. To prevent your blades from scratching on the metal button rivets when putting them in and pulling them out of the sheath, you should take some Gorilla or Duct tape and put it on the inside of the sheath to cover the rivet. Also when inserting and withdrawing the swords, you will want to keep them pressed to the inside of the sheath, not the outside.

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.
