From start to finish, this has been a most pleasurable buying experience. The website gives clear specifications for each product, and detailed advice about legal ownership, through to potential delivery timescales and costs (through Customs). The tracking service was always accurate and up-to-date, and the sword arrived within the timescales expected. No matter how long it had taken through Customs (in my case, not a major issue), this item would have been well worth the wait! It is absolutely stunning, exactly as photographed - and it looks and feels "right". Sturdy, strong and sharp - and "beautiful". No hesitation in recommending BladesPro UK, as a caring and helpful seller, and in commending them on this Tanto. I'll be back soon!!!
