Following Italian legislation (Art. 45 della legge del 18.6.1931 n° 773 ; G.U. 26.6.1940 n° 149, approvato con R.D. 6 maggio 1940, n° 635; G.U. 26-6-1940, n° 149 Suppl. ord.; art.5 della legge n° 36 del 21.02.1990), OUR SWORDS AND DAGGERS ARE NOT WEAPONS AS THEY AREN’T SHARP: they’re blunt, which means that they present a blunt edge and rounded tip.
At Malleus Martialis, we truly care about the quality of our products.
We give utmost attention to details, materials, assembling, and packaging to ensure the best possible outcome. However, creating training swords in the way we do involves a certain level of control, and sometimes, despite our best efforts, unforeseen challenges can arise.
When that happens, we are always here to help you resolve any issues that may have occurred due to our responsibility. We believe that making you happy is not just our priority, but also our duty.
This warranty does not cover for normal wear and tear, sharpening of the blade,
damage caused by misuse, lack of regular maintenance, or unskilled disassembly.
Any sword can break or fail if subjected to sufficient abuse.
Our warranty period lasts for 24 months from the date of delivery to the consumer, in accordance with European regulations.
Our warranty applies if the product fails to meet the acceptable standard for safe and common use during the exercise of the HEMA practice due to a manufacturing flaw.
We stand behind our products and will cover broken or not uniform parts; damaged blades after being used in a controlled sparring setting against a symmetrical blade, and other manufacturing flaws that prevent the consumer from using the product (e.g. improper heat treatment, evident misalignment of the assembled parts, cracked nuts & bolts, or misconstructed elements). Any issues with the blade must be reported within 30 calendar days from the delivery date.
We want you to get the most out of your purchases, but there are a few cases in which our warranty does not apply, including:
• Products without a sales receipt or invoice.
• Damage caused by accidents, negligence, abuse, or improper use.
• Damage resulting from normal wear and tear or deterioration due to use.
• Damage to the leather or cord wrapping caused by direct hits or crossguard loose or bent due to the same cause.
• Lack of appropriate or reasonable maintenance or corrosion.
• Damage resulting from unskilled assembly or disassembly.
• Modifications not recommended or approved in writing by Malleus Martialis that may damage the integrity of the product.

We shall evaluate the defects and non-compliances notified, and:

If the issue concerns a Product/s purchased from our official partners, it must be reported to the official partner first in order to open a case.
• For Direct Consumers in the United States (anyone who purchased from the Online Store or our Customer service directly): In case of loosened parts or hilt breakages, we will connect you with our authorized repair center, in order to properly evaluate the defective product and fix it if compliant. The Consumer will be required to send the product to the repair center at their own expense.

Before purchasing our creations, you should only proceed if you’re either a performer/athlete who knows how to handle the items or a collector who won’t use them.

May 6, 1940, No. 635; G.U. 26-6-1940, No. 149 Suppl ord.; Article 5 of Law No. 36 of 21.02.1990).

Customers from the UK: we are shipping the products to your location without any issues, but due to Brexit, customs fees and VAT will be charged as it’s considered an export operation.

ABOUT CUSTOMS FEES: If you order the product from outside of the European Union, the Customs Agency in your country may apply import fees and charge VAT on the parcel (if applicable). It is not possible for us to establish what the extra costs will be, however in our experience customs fees are on average between 20% and 25% of the product price.
Please note that all the import fees and VAT charges are to be paid by the Customer and are not eligible for a refund.

•To Italy shipping starts from 20 €
•To Central Europe shipping starts between 30 and 40 €
•To US, Australia, New Zealand, Greater China and many Extra European destinations shipping is from 80 to 300 €, depending if it’s an economy or express shipment and on the weight and dimensions of the parcels

We accept a certain amount of custom orders per year, and we would be honored to make your dreams come true.
-The Armeria Collection custom projects start from a completion time of 6 months from finalizing all the details of the project;
-each project is evaluated individually, and if we believe that a different artist would be more suitable for the project, we will recommend them to you. Each swordsmith has its own specialty, like chefs, so we prefer to accept challenging works only if it’s in line with our research;
-in case of extremely challenging and experimental projects, we may not be able to provide a precise date of completion, however, we will keep you up to date with the progress.
Currently, we have only one reseller in the US [hemasupplies.com] who has the exclusive for the United States of America. Nonetheless, we’re open to proposals for any other country and you can get in touch by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
