∴ Shipping Costs ∴

Dark Rocks

Safe shipping of fencing swords has become more difficult in recent years, with prices rising and couriers increasing their lists of prohibited items.

We actively strive to find a balance between affordable shipping solutions and tracked, guaranteed delivery to ensure your sword reaches you as soon as possible.

Our shipping costs vary depending on the weight and length of the package. As such we choose to invoice for shipping separately once the order has been completed, to avoid charging too much or too little.


For swords and blades we use a tracked shipping service from Parcelforce Worldwide. Once we’ve booked your parcel in, we will send you a shipping number so you can track its progress. We will give you the option of adding shipping insurance to your invoice to protect your parcel in transit.


For small items such as care kits, books and gorgets, we use Royal Mail first class services. These are not tracked, but guaranteed. We will let you know once they are on their way to you.


Please note that any customs or import fees for international shipments will need to be paid separately by the recipient upon the parcel's arrival in the country. As these can vary considerably based on several factors, we cannot calculate them for you in advance.


Price Guide

Prices are subject to change over time, but as of early 2024, tracked 48hr shipping costs for an average rapier to our most popular destinations are as follows.

Please note, these prices are estimates only, and a heavier or longer order will result in higher shipping costs.
