We attempted to duplicate, insofar as possible, Jerry Hossom's famous Retribution design. We could not make it as light as he does due to the D Guard. It is a really good blade shape for BJD. We cannot thank him enough for his kind permission for us to make these swords (he makes what interests him and had no interest in making D Guard swords himself). Once again, we made these with his permission. He was not involved in the project beyond answering a few questions about his Retribution Knife. They were made in D2 matte finish, 1075 with hamon and weapons grade carbon steel San Mai, a total of one prototype and six final pair. D Guard is for stopping/trapping, not balanced for flipping. Below are photos of all of them. For sale at EverythingWingChun.com or contact us. Prices vary (so ignore the price listed). The price listed is for the collector grade D2 pair but it is not for sale here. Our Wing Chun distributor, EverythingWingChun.com is selling these.
