Shipping Swords to the USA?

Has anyone had any problems shipping swords to the USA?

I've got one to send and was wondering what the best courier to use is and what I need to put on the customs info to make sure it gets through alright.

Re: Help needed on 1534 French Sword Belt

This is what I came up with in the end. I'd have liked to change a few things but the customers deadline and budget meant I had to miss out on things like a metal belt keeper and better strap end.

Rawle's Pattern Cartridge box question

I am in the process of making one of the Rawles pattern 36 hole cartridge boxes and I could do with some help if any one has one of these.

I need to know how deep the holes are in the reversable wooden block. Also the dimensions of the reversable wooden block would be good too.

Can anyone help?

Re: Help needed on 1534 French Sword Belt

Yeah I have sorted it now I think. I found a picture of one that was recovered from the wreck of the Mary Rose so I used that as a starting point. I'll post a picture once its made.

Help needed on 1534 French Sword Belt

I have a guy asking me if I can make him a sword belt like the one worn in 1534 by the French Explorer Jacques Cartier. I have trawled through my limited library and searched the internet but I can’t find any decent pictures of what a French sword belt from this era would look like. This is the only...

They are cool. I made myself a simple one a couple of years ago to hold my 9mm blanks. It was very handy when reloading during a skirmish on the Golden Hind.

Fitting Scabbard Lockets

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but does anyone know how you fit this type of scabbard locket properly? I have been bending the pins out on ones I have fitted before but I am not convinced this is the correct way to fit them. http://www.cybercyde.co.uk/images/9269_12.jpg

I am looking at starting trading at the fairs next year and I was wondering how much stock do you take to fares? I do a range of baldrics and sword belts along with replicas of historical documents and charts. How many of each item is it best to take?
