Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

Hi, how long is the warranty on your swords?

The warranty is 2 years long and refers to material faults and faults that appear when used in a proper way. The warranty does not cover to common wear out. We recommend using swords made by the same producers for sparring swordfights. Our weapons are designed for training and theatre fencing (stage combats). Brutal and improper use (such as stabbing and knocking it into the ground, or forcing it) can damage even the best sword!
