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.

Postage/Shipping

Items are sent tracked and recorded from the UK. I am able to dispatch things once or twice each week. They are packed securely.

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 face.

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 eastonantiquearms@gmail.com 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.
