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 2018 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 - £45
Austria - £45
Norway - £45
Sweden - £45
Poland - £45
USA - £45
Canada - £45
Australia - £70
New Zealand - £70
I take either bank transfer (in the UK)
or Paypal (in the UK and internationally).
I will offer payment plans on items over
£500 and sometimes by agreement on items over £400. Payment
plans are spread over two or three months, depending on the
value of the item. Items will not be shipped until payment is
I will 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 and conditions
Items listed on this website are all to the
best of my knowledge genuine antique/vintage items. I will not
list replicas as originals, like some dealers do.
I will only sell weapons to over-18's.
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.
When you are interested in an item, please
email me at email@example.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.
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
This is a hobby for me in order to manage
my own collection, I have other jobs and therefore you may not get an instant
response to your email, but I will attempt to reply as soon as
possible and I am online often.
Because I am a hobbyist I do not have the
overheads of a dealer - therefore my prices are likely to be a
little lower than you will see on some dealer's websites. This
does not imply lower quality,
simply that I keep my overhead costs down.
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.
