General conditions of sale
These general conditions detail the origin of the weapons and their maker, the manner of the weapons' use, training to precede their use, after-use treatment, and the conditions of sale.
Origin of the weaponsThe replicas of historical weapons (sword, dagger, hunting knife etc.) are made by Pavel Leier, Jeníkovice 146, 503 46 Třebechovice pod Orebem, ID No.: 45936901, the holder of a trade license, registered in Hradec Králové under No. 26203 stating the trade as "Art and craft processing of metals."
The weapons are made from manganese steel (80Mn4), which is wear-resistant and therefore suitable for making springs, or spring elements. The weapons conform to the Inspection certificate issued by Válcovny plechu Frýdek - Místek, a. s. The handle is covered by a leather grip, made and coloured in accordance with the procedure approved by the General Hygienist Office of the Czech Republic, issued on October 31, 2000.
Use of the weaponsThe sharp replica of a weapon must not be used for fencing. A sharp weapon can be visually identified by all adult persons who do not suffer from a medical condition limiting their visual acuity (sharp - blunt).
When using the weapons, the following protective aids must be used:
If the user fails to use the protective equipment, he/she exposes themselves to danger of injury at their own risk. It is also recommended to use the weapon against weapons made by the same manufacturer or against weapons with the same level of hardness. The user should check these facts carefully when purchasing the product.
When using the weapon it is necessary to proceed in a way minimizing the risk of injury.
The training procedure should be as follows:
The best way to acquire the aforementioned principles is completing a training course lead by an experienced trainer, where the training always starts with blunt weapons. Such training, done in slow steps and without rush, will help to obtain the precision of movements, maintaining the highest safety level. The replicas of historical weapons may be used only when having acquired basic knowledge. Free fencing with heavy weapons, even blunt ones, is by no means acceptable.
After-use treatmentAfter every use of the weapon it is necessary to inspect it carefully and remove burrs (grots) formed during the use. This may be done using a diamond file or a grinder. If the weapon is not to be used for a prolonged period of time, lubricate its metal parts with preservative oil.
