While they are not perfect (in my mind) compared to the EWC lines, the design and handling is great. Perfect for both training. Display-wise, I would rather go with EWC's creations, as Buick Yip's line has some areas for improvement, such as the handles where you can see big gaps between the wood and knife sometimes. Not a big deal but does affect your grip if you have bigger hands. You don't see this with the EWC series (Domination, Flagship....).
