These swords are the latest from a collaboration between Buick Yip and Everything Wing Chun that goes back several years. This is the 12th model of Buick Yip swords (of which EWC has helped collaborate on the last 10 models). Like all the others, this sword is a limited edition that will sell out. Only 115 are available. It might be the last one Buick Yip makes.

The main difference in this model and the last one is simply the handle shape and size (on the last model it was a little small for most people, so this was corrected). (In the video below Sifu Tommy is reviewing V9 of this sword (not V12). V12 has thicker handles.

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 glossy or black finish.

The Chinese characters on the swords say "Wing Chun Passed Down Through Direct Lineage. 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.
