"The Medieval Sword in the Modern World (2nd Edition)"
Tinker Pearce Tactical
You MUST be over 18 years of age to order. It is up to the individual ordering to insure that the piece ordered is legal under the laws of the jurisdiction where they live!
Custom orders for swords are done on the following basis- I keep a number of heat-treated blade-blanks for swords on-hand; call to see what is available. If I have a blankl on-hand that is suited to what you want and we reach an agreement as to the price I will proceed to make it. Circumstances allowing this will take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
If I do not have a blank on-hand to make your swords it may still be done but may take significantly longer to complete.
You will not be required to put down a deposit. When the item is completed I'll send pictures and specs for your approval. You will not be obliged to accept the finished piece if it doesn't please you; if the finished piece doesn't work for you I'll adjust it to suit or simply post it for sale and we go our seperate ways, no harm, no foul. I've been using this system of doing things for several years now and it has mostly worked to everyone's satisfaction.
Now the conditions- This will work only if everyone acts in good faith. When you order a piece you have to be prepared to pay for it on approval and bear in mind that it might be ready very quickly. OK, stuff happens- unexpected expenses crop up all the time; if you cannot take delivery let me know ASAP. I'll undertsand, trust me. I may at times prefer to simply post a piece for sale rather than modifying it if you don't approve the finished piece. It's an artistic thing; sometimes a blade comes out 'right' and I am loathe to change it. If this occurs keep an eye on the blanks and if a suitable blank comes along we'll try it again with specs better suited to what you want.
Another condition hasn't changed- I won't make a sword that I don't like or that won't work; it's just not going to happen. Swords that I don't like generally don't come out as well as the customer deserves, and swords that don't work aren't swords- they are sculpture and I am a sword-maker, not a sculptor!
