Sending Your Sword

When sending your sword for repairs, please include a detailed list of what repairs you want to have made to the sword and always include all of your contact information and secure it to the sword handle (rubber band, tape, etc) before wrapping with the bubble-wrap packaging material. 

If you do not have a suitable carton, go to the UPS store and buy one of the 6" x 6" x 48" long cardboard cartons... they will fit an average sized sword just fine and it is best to fully stuff the carton to keep the sword from movement.  Please avoid using the 4"x 4" cartons as they are too flimsy and do not stand up well.

Never send a bare naked bare blade without asking for and reading our shipping instructions. If your sword does not have a Saya (scabbard) with handle securely attached, let us know and we will email safe packaging instructions that will insure your swords safe arrival. 

When mailing your sword, always include Insurance as it provides guaranteed delivery. And, do your very best to send your sword or handle to us via the US Postal Service Priority Mail.

Contacting Us

If you call and we do not answer, follow up with an Email

Please, no Voicemail messages... and no, we do not 'tweet tweet or twitter' but plan to do so just as soon as we start growing feathers.

IMPORTANT: If you send an Email and we do not respond quickly, please re-submit it.  We occasionally receive inquiries and when we reply, we are informed that the senders email return address is no good. I'm sure that there are more than a few potential customers out there who are asking themselves, "Why didn't Fred & Company respond to my inquiry?"

Virus and Malware attacks plus computer crashes over the past 15 years have also been responsible for occaisional Email losses.
