Prices & Order

I have set up a detailed price list so that everyone can calculate the budget they want to devote to their saber.

For a practitioner, the main thing is a custom blade (length, curvature, weight, balance) and good mounts, able to withstand intensive practice. Such a sword can be obtained from 2300 euros.

Then depending on the budget, the practitioner or the collector can obtain a sword with more neat finishes with more fanciful details.

Manufacturing & delivery time
 
As an art craftsman, I pay particular attention to the quality of my creations. In this sense, my annual production is limited by my production capacity according to demanding specifications. The swords, knives and other objects coming out of my workshop are made individually and for their manufacture time, the more my order book is loaded the more time it take. Currently my average delivery time is 12 to 14 months. For some specifications this time may double.
