Wearing quality armour might be crucial for many soldiers fighting in cruel battles through the world’s history. Introduced in ancient times, the armours passed a long development and were changing their forms until they eventually became obsolete and disappeared from the battlefields in late 17th century. At least the classic cuirasses did. This article is about mail armour which consisted from small rings connected together. Mail replaced scale armour (leather coat with sewn metal scales used until 11th – 13th century) and was followed by plate armour.
Such a delicate thing as a samurai sword requires adequate care. True samurais never compromised its maintenance. Japanese people used to say that the sword was combatant’s soul. To reach maximal possible sharpness the blades are made from carbon steel which means they can rust. If you want your precise weapon to remain in top condition you need to oil the blade properly.
The primary weapon of Swiss soldiers of 14th and 15th century used to be a long wooden staff (Halm) with an axe (Barte) on its end. Linking these two words together gave the weapon its name. Halberds were broadly used mainly by mercenary units (called lansquenet) in the German lands (Holy Roman Empire) but became quite popular abroad as well.

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.
