i learned the hard way that some sellers will write the item location to be in UK but infact they have it in their land of origin. this result in that they send it to you and custom may stop pakage adn return the pakage leaving you with no weapon. when you try to get refund they will conduct the amount used for postage which makes me to think that maybe they dident send it in the first place. my best advice is not to deal with chinese swordcompanies but instead use european, this way you wont get into trouble with customs either. i hope this will save you some money and disappointments. whach out for Zhi swords.
