UK Sales Of Edged Weapons To Over 18s Only
UK law is clear (Offensive Weapons Act 2019) that impliments
with sharp or edged/pointed blades must only be sold to
over-18s within the UK and can only be posted to residential
addresses under certain conditions (which I comply with
here). Therefore if you are a UK buyer I must ask for a copy
(photo by email) of either a passport or driving licence.
When I post out packages they must be labelled as to be
delivered only to the named recipient, who must be over 18
years old, OR I can post to a business address.
Items are sent tracked and recorded from the UK. I am able
to dispatch things once or twice each week. They are packed
Indicative costs in 2019 to different countries for a single
sword are below. The costs are largely dictated by the size
and less so by the weight. Sending two or more swords only
costs a bit more than sending a single one, so for overseas
customers it is much more efficient to get multiple items
shipped at the same time (I can hold an item until I get a
second item you want):
UK - £10
France - £40
Germany - £40
Italy - £40
Austria - £40
Norway - £50
Finland - £50
Sweden - £45
Poland - £45
USA - £45
Canada - £45
Australia - £75
New Zealand - £75
How To Pay
I can take either bank transfer (in the UK) or Paypal (in
the UK and internationally), or cash if meeting face to
I can only offer payment plans on items over £400, by prior
arrangement. Payment plans are spread over two or three
months, depending on the value of the item. Items will not
be shipped until payment is complete.
I can take deposits of 20% to hold an item for 1 month, but
those deposits are not refundable if the balancing payment
is not made by the end of that 1 month period.
Terms & Conditions
When you are interested in an item, please email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you a quote for
the sale price, plus postage to your location. We then agree
the payment method (eg. Paypal or bank transfer), and once
you have paid, I send the item to you. Please remember that
a payment must clear before I will post the item.
Items listed on this website are all to the best of my
knowledge genuine antique/vintage items.
I've sold to various people on Sword Forum International and
the Schola Forum; you can check my trustworthy track record
of delivering items in either of those forums, as well as on
various Facebook groups.
Items bought from me are "as seen". I will attempt to
describe as many of the imperfections as possible and show
them in the photos, but I will not accept returns unless you
feel that the product is drastically different to the
description and photos. You will find my descriptions a lot
more accurate than most auction catalogues and some dealers.
If you have doubts or questions about an item then I
encourage you to ask me before purchasing. I will be honest.
If you want to sell or trade something, then please feel
free to get in touch. Part exchanges are not out of the
question and I am always willing to consider offers.
If you have something I'm interested in then I may be
willing to travel to you if you are not too far away, which
reduces some of your hassle and expense.
I am not responsible for what people do with their antiques
once they receive them. I assume that buyers are sensible,
law-abiding and sane.
