FAQ's

1. Can you source me a particular item?

Yes, of course, we can! As long as it legal in the UK! Any stupid requests will be ignored, and you will be blacklisted from any further contact.

2. Do I need a Licence to order your items?

No, but we will age-verify any customer’s order.  This can be done by sending us a copy of your passport or driving license. We will then store your proof so you will not have to resubmit it for future orders. A selfie holding your ID will be perfect. Once it’s done ORDER AWAY.

3. What details do you hold about me?

We do not hold any of your financial information, but we hold your order details under the standard UK Guidelines.

4. Will you ever disclose my information?

Under no circumstances will we disclose your information.  Only if there is a valid court order which we will have to comply with.

5. Return Policy

If you are unhappy with your item, please feel free to return it. The item must be in its original packaging and unused. Please email us before returning the item: –

6. Are Samurai Swords – Katana and Wakizashi – Legal in the UK?

We’re often asked about UK Law: Are samurai swords, such as Katana and Wakizashi legal?  Does one need a license to own them?

Currently, (we keep this page updated with any changes), the scenario is as follows:

  • All products sold on our website are legal to own in the UK. 
  • You can not carry a sword in public without a valid reason. 
  • Anyone purchasing a sword must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Samurai and other curved swords are legal, *AS LONG AS* they have been handmade using traditional production methods. All swords sold on our site are made using traditional methods and are legal in the UK. 

There is a BBC article from 2008 that claims all Samurai Swords are banned in the UK.  While the article was correct when it was written, it was obsoleted 4 short months later by the passage of an amendment that allowed for swords “…made before 1954 or was made at any other time according to traditional methods of making swords by hand [emphasis added].  All our swords are hand-forged using these traditional methods, so they are UK legal.
