UK, Turkey, & Demark - Swords have not been making it into the country more and more, please read more information below in your country.

UPDATE 12/11/08
If you are inside the UK and wish to have a Functional blade sent to you ,we can under these circumstances:
If you are a martial artist with the paperwork to prove it to your UK customs office upon arrival to the customs office, (they will contact you or you can contact them), then we will ship to you! We can also ship to your dojo or martial arts school in the care of your Master, Sijo, Hanshi , Sifu, or anyone with a martial arts letterhead. It must be official. You will not need to furnish this to us, but to your local customs office.


To all countries
We mark all shipments as "gifts". You will be responsible for any taxes or duties on your shipment. We have no way of knowing those charges. Please check your country's local laws at a postal website for your country to make sure our replica swords are allowed to ship. In the rare event that a sword is sent back to us because swords are not allowed into your country, we will refund the price of the sword less the shipping charge as soon as it arrives back to us in the United States. If your country does not allow swords into your country, you do risk the package being seized and we cannot refund any monies since it is your responsibility to check your laws first. Please make sure the age limit of ordering swords in your country. In the U.S.A., it is 18 and older.

Insurance is purchased for all international orders. Since we insure each package, we have to declare the value of the sword plus shipping. This is for both the customer and Hanzoswords protection. If the item arrives damaged, we can, with help from the customer, file an insurance claim. If the claim is approved, we can reship at no cost to you.

What do I do if the item arrives damaged?
First things first, email us. We will then tell you the step by step process to help us file the claim. Keep ALL packaging so if the insurance company wishes to review the packaging, you have it. Also, from time to time we ask you to ship back the broken items if the swords are over $75 each. We can send them back to our distributor for replacements. At NO additional charge to you, you can write RETURN TO SENDER on your package, tape it back up and send it back to us at no cost to you. Please keep all packaging for this purpose.

The information we need from you for insurance claims will include a signed letter from you as well as pictures of the damage, pictures of packaging, pictures of outer box damage. You can email both the pictures and the signed letter to us. We will print those items out and send them with the claim. We will let you know what to write inside the signed letter. This letter and the photos especially, help the insurance company make quick decisions. This insurance claim usually takes 10-14 business days to a final decision. We will always contact you once the insurance claim is final.

We love to sell to all countries, however, we would like you to double check your country laws and Postal Service import laws before you place your order. There are a few countries (see the list below) that we have shipped swords to and one or two have come back or have been seized. Please make sure to check your local import laws before placing an order. Since we do not live in your country, we do not know many of the laws, and we cannot possibly tell you if a sword is allowed into your country. If you have any information for us, please feel free to contact us and we can update this page.

If the swords are returned to us, we will gladly give a refund of the sword price, less the shipping charges. If the swords are seized, we cannot refund any amount of your order. It is your responsibility to check your laws before placing an order. We do our best to inform everyone in the world the information we do know, however, you may know more than we do, since you live in your country.
Thank you.

9/22/08: We will no longer ship samurai swords over 20 inches to your country, (see exception above dated 12/11/08). If your package is confiscated, no one receives the order and money is lost.
We've heard anything 20 inches (50CM) or smaller is allowed into your country. If it is a straight blade samurai sword over 20 inches (50CM), it should be allowed into your country. (9-10-08:If there is any other information regarding this, please let us know) An example of this is our Black Warrior Chokuto Sword, click here to view.

9/10/08 We've heard there was a sword ban to your country in April of 2008. Since April 1, 2008, we have shipped over 22 packages, three have been seized, but over 22 different packages with swords have made it through.

Please check your local laws to be sure of this information, as it may change without our knowledge. We will continue to ship to your countries for shields, shorter swords, daggers, and pocket knives. If the package is returned to us, the sender, we will refund the price of the merchandise, less shipping and handling.

If you are from any of these countries and have any information for us regarding any bans, please feel free to email us and let us know so we can update this section of our website.


The * next to the country means we have shipped to this country with no problems in the past. If your country does not have a *, or if it is not on the list, it just means we have not gotten an order from your country yet.
