Top quality products, unbeatable prices, first grade service! Iv purchased swords from blades uk for a while and could not fault the service delivery. The ability to call the owner direct is fantastic, and the price match promise is a big bonus.
Cheers and keep up the good work, I look forward to drooling over new stock ;)

Agree ive looked around alot of different sites and no one come close to BUK well done!

One little thing i think it would be better if you sent an initial email saying you have received the order and are now doing age checks etc. It would have put my mind to ease when i first ordered.

Love the site

I have been thinking about the short customer review suggestion and I have thought of an adaption for it how about if instead of reviewing web pages individually it was satisfied customer testamonials on the home page to permote the site to first time viewers to maybe boost new customers purchasing here

There's one flaw in that owner, a few "less than quality" Chinese websites use falsified reviews on a "testimonials" section to hype up their falsified info of a sword, which I suspect is illegal. But nice idea owner
Ps, Mick is a stainless steel katana (curved blade 48") legal?

hi geordie
if it can be prooved its traditionally forged it may be fine (but please dont quote me on that) to be safe ive asked lawrence for you and he,ll give you an answer as soon as is possible may i ask how your getting it not from where but how i.e. from a friend or from a retailer.

I doubt it's traditionally forged but it's under 50 inch, I got it from the net, was too goo to be true, the info had been copy+pasted on almost every sword, the one I got was a kill bill sword for around 40 quid a few years back, it has no tang and is only attached by the habaki with glue.... :/ damn Chinese @!#%¥!

The law states under 50 centimetres not inches and a 48" stainless katana shaped object is about as much use as a limp. :D

Re curved swords, anything made using 'traditional processes of making swords by hand' should be fine, the Home Office have said they would expect those production techniques to be relevant to the country of origin i.e. Japanese swords forged using traditional Japanese processes however that is not in the letter of the law, more of an assumption which a court may or may not determine relevant. the onus though, will be on you to provide proof that the sword is made using the traditional processes, a letter stating it is is - have already been determined insufficient. A video or detailed explanation including information on specific blade characteristics as a result of each traditional production step has always worked for us.
