general warranty for swords
Our show combat weapons are subject to the legal warranty of two years like all other goods. However, it should be noted that the customer is responsible for providing evidence of defects (e.g. material defects) that were already present at the time of purchase and have not been claimed within 6 months. Complaints after 6 months are therefore often difficult and unfortunate for both sides. An exhibition sword is naturally a wear item. Even the best and most expensive exhibition sword becomes chipped after heavy use, the parry bar can become wobbly and the grip can become loose. This is normal, because strong forces act on the material. Even with these blades the unlikely case can occur that they break if they are already weakened by several and deep embrasures. These are therefore usually not justified reasons for complaint but normal wear and tear. A used show sword shows signs of use after use.
