I want to buy a sword as a gift for my son who will be commissioned in the RAN in December. Given air-travel security I think it will be problematic to buy one in the UK before flying out - definitely not hand-carry, and I would not wish to entrust it to hold baggage! I have been looking around for a source in Aus and have come across these people: Military Shop and SALT . It looks as if they are one and the same. Has anybody had any dealings with them? Would I be safe ordering from them? Are there any other suggestions? Many thanks in advance.
