Terms and conditions
The client acknowledges that the making process of Japanese sword takes approximately 1 year, however, it may take even longer based on the of the order. Opening date of the making process is considered the date when the first 1/3 of the total price is delivered (or handled) unless agreed otherwise. The contractor then makes the blade and informs the client who is then to pay the second third of the total price. The delay between the notification and the second payment is added to the whole production time. Once the order is completed, the client pays the last third of the total price upon collecting (or prior).
The blades made especially for Iaido are not suitable for beginners for tameshigiri practice because of their less robust construction - they are more prone to bend or break.
