How to refurbish your sword

We need to examine all swords prior to providing a quotation for refurbishment work.

Step 1

Download and complete the refurbishment form to send with your sword.


Please call 01825 890909 or email enquiries@crisp-and-sons.com

Send your sword along with your completed form to:Crisp & Sons, Unit 14 - 18, Oaks Farm, Blackboys Road, Framfield, East Sussex, TN22 5PN

Recommendations when sending your sword:

Insure or register the parcel as Sussexswords and Crisp & Sons cannot take responsibility for the sword’s non-arrival. We recommend you send the sword by using a recorded delivery service.

Protect the tip of the blade if the sword is not in a scabbard.
Ensure that the parcel is packaged carefully to reduce the risk of damage, when in transit.

If sending your sword from outside the UK please contact us prior to making shipping arrangements.

Step 2

Once Crisp & Sons has received the sword a full quotation will be sent to you. A quotation can take up to six weeks to prepare.

Note: Our quotations are accurate at the time of viewing but some damage may come to light when the sword is being disassembled, which was not evident before. Where additional work is required, you will be contacted for approval before proceeding.

Step 3

Once the quotation is approved we will require written confirmation of the quote to confirm the order and complete the refurbishment. Payment will be requested at the time of dispatch.

Refurbishments take between 8 and 12 weeks from the time of placing the order, however, you will be advised of the lead time on your Sales Acknowledgement.

Please note: In the event you do not wish to proceed with the refurbishment and the quotation is not accepted, there will be a fee for the returning of your sword via a registered courier company.

Insured Express Shipments are charged at:
£ 34.00 + vat (UK)
£ POA (EU)

* Standard Insurance covers up to a maximum of £600.00 per consignment, additional insurance available upon request.
