past customer service you only need to
read through a few of our

When shipped your sword, dagger, axe, etc. will come to you
with an oil base product on it. Our Battle-Ready Swords are
made of high carbon spring steel. They are REAL
swords. This means that a certain amount of care is required
to keep your sword looking beautiful.
Whenever handling your sword do not touch the blade. If you
do handle the blade use a soft cloth and WD-40 or Vaseline
to wipe down the blade.
keep the brass shiny use Brasso and a soft cloth. Rub the
Brasso on in a circular pattern then wipe off with a clean
part of the cloth.
should not store your blade in a leather scabbard for long
periods of time. Leather retains moisture and will cause
your blade to rust. Storing a sword in a wood scabbard is
acceptable. If you do store your sword in the scabbard
whether it be leather or wood be sure to put a heavy coating
of Vaseline on the blade, and apply a new coating
the blade does become rusty use WD-40 and a green scotch
bright or steel wool pad. Rub the rust spot with the blade
length. After rust has been removed wipe down with a soft
cloth then apply a coat of Vaseline or WD-40.
not attempt to chop down a tree with your sword.
Such an activity is guaranteed to damage your sword. Axes and
machetes are well designed for this with the weight of the steel
concentrated over the point of percussion. When you strike a
firmly fixed object like a tree or a thick branch with a sword,
a great deal of the blade projects past the object being cut,
causing the blade to bend or torque. It should be pointed out
that the Japanese, who believe in a great deal of practise with
the sword, used thick bamboo. The bamboo was resistant to a cut,
but didn't have the rigidity of a tree, and so it would not have
damaged a valuable blade. For a Japanese warrior to cut into a
tree would have been unthinkable.
Care For Mail, Helmets And Armour
mail shirt or coif will come to you with a heavy coat of oil on
it. The easiest way to remove this oil is by dipping it or
allowing it to soak in lacquer thinner. Once the oil is removed,
moisture in the air and perspiration will cause rust to form.
There is really no way to avoid this. The best way to remove
light rust is to put the mail piece into a sack or pillow case
with fine sand and shake it vigorously until the rust is
removed. You may wish to spray a clear silicone coat on the
mail. This helps to slow rust down. The best thing is to do
after use is clean it with sand. If you are going to store the
mail for a longer period of time, the best thing is to oil it
again and keep it in a dry place. The oil can be easily removed
again. Your helmet or armour can be lacquered or oiled or simply
keep it dry and wipe it down with a clean cotton cloth after
wearing or handling it.
