While we make each sword by hand, we usually have a number of sharp version of our swords in stock or near completion, so for most sword orders, we will be able to ship your swords quickly. Non-sharp version however, will take a few more days. For new swords that we introduce, the first batch might take a few weeks for the production of new customized fitting and scabbard to ramp up. In general you can expect to have your sword ship in a couple of days upon order. And for non-sharp version and brand new offerings, within a few weeks.
We have negotiated with our carrier a big discount for our USA customers. For order placed after August 13th 2020, $60 shipping for single hand swords and $90 for long double handed swords. We are working very hard to find ways to lower shipping charges to other countries as well.
Since our website can only support one flat shipping charge, we will keep the same flat rate for your checkout, once the order goes through, we will refund the difference to our US customers.
Once again, thank you for your support and please help spread the good news.

COVID-19 impact on worldwide shipping
Due to the current pandemic, our default carrier EMS China that use passenger flights for cargo, stop their service for most countries.
To deliver our swords to you, we have to rely on companies like UPS, DHL and SF-Express who have their own cargo fleet. The shipping charges of these carriers are higher. So we have no choice but to adapt to their pricing during this period. Once EMS is available for us again, we will restore our regular shipping charges.
For USA, Canada, EU and Australia via SF-Express, UPS or DHL
Single hand sword 1.5 - 2 kg $90
Double hand sword 2.5 - 3 kg $150
