Před nějakou dobou sem si zde tento meč také pořídil a musím říct že je to velice dobrý kousek, jak po vzhledové stránce tak po praktické, výborně sedí v rukou a dobře se sní zachází. Meč je dodáván v kazetě která je potažena krasnou vyšívanou látkou a je k němu přibalen i stojánek a sada na údržbu meče.

Tuto katanu mám přibližně 4 měsíce a víceméně splnila moje očekávání. Snad jedinou vítku bych měl k ostrosti čepele, ale toto je problém u naprosté většiny mečů na praktické použití, které dnes pořídíte. S měkčími materiály jako tatami/máčené noviny atd. si čepel poradí bez větších problému. Pokud ale chcete katanu používat na širší okruh věcí doporučuji si připlatit za čepel s pravým hamonem. Při kontaktu s tvrdšími pet-láhvemi dochází k poškození ostří. Toto poškození ale s trochou snahy opravíte i doma.

Před pár lety jsem si koupil tento meč zde na tomto webu a nemohu si jej vynachválit. Skutečně nádhera. Provedením se podobá kataně z filmu Poslední samuraj, avšak bez japonských znaků na čepeli. Přložená základní sada na čištění a údržbu je dostačujíci. Také cestovní pouzdro je výborné když chcete katanu přenšet bez zbytečných pohledů kolemjdoucích. Děkuji

Dobrý den, rád bych se zeptal, zda je čepel odolná vůči korozi. Děkuji.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

Why you cannot deliver swords or daggers to Switzerland?

Dear customers from Switzerland, we are very sorry that we cannot deliver swords, daggers, sabres, maces, combat axes, flails etc. to your country. We meet with bureaucratic obstacles at all products that either are or just look as a weapon again and again. We receive all consignments to Switzerland automatically back with an explanation "subject to the import permit." Our logistics partners told us the following: "both goods that are sold only to persons over 18 years and goods that merely look as weapons are subject to import permit. (For example: toy guns are sellable without restrictions in Switzerland, BUT are subject to import permit issued by the Swiss authorities!)". We have found only the following solutions so far: (1) The customer secures collection at our address in the Czech Republic himself (his logistic partner can handle this procedure better), (2) the customer gives us a delivery address in the EU. The disadvantage is that we have to charge the VAT tax in both cases.
