You give me too much credit Mick, I haven't bought a sword from abroad since the law was amended and don't intend to either - far too risky IMO.

I wonder if anyone has and was successful? Have you heard of anyone that did, and how did they do it? Surely there must be a way of importing them reliably, if Blades-uk can - surely it is a matter of a correct certificate.

I wish Loz would comment - I would ideally like to import it through a store and forget about all this legistlation headache.

And sorry for all the trouble guys - I just really really want this sword on a display in my room!

It's no trouble at all.
If we can help somebody we're more than willing to try at least, providing it's not some clown who wants a light sabre made from unobtainium that can cut a battle cruiser in half - and we've had a few of 'em.
Best give Loz a ring and see if he can get you one, that 'Szabla husarska typ 1' is a really nice sword that anyone would be proud to own but it's a lot of Zslotych at about £565 plus shipping? to risk losing.
Hope you do get one, keep us posted.

Hmmm wasn't quite expecting someone to follow a a link from the picture itself..

Managed to find another one, even better perhaps, and £100 cheaper :) I will drop Loz an email i think, to save myself a headache.

what do u guys think of this?
