1, Shipping Forwarder

 We have shipped authentic Japanese swords to Australia via EMS and 20Cube many times. EMS has the limitation regarding to the size of a package. Therefore, while we can send Wakizashi or Tanto swords via EMS, we might have to use 20Cube if you like to order a long Katana. 20 Cube offer a door-to-door shipping service from Japan to your address in Australia. The delivery time will be approximately 7-14 days, including the customs clearance process. 20Cube offers shipping service nationwide in Australia with the help of TNT, their business partner.

2, Additional Shipping Charge

 We won’t charge any additional shipping fee if you order either Tanto or Wakizashi swords. We can ship some of the Katana swords via EMS. If you like to know the Katana you are interested can be shipped by EMS, please feel free to contact us.

 If we have to use 20Cube for delivery, the shipping cost is much more pricey than that of EMS or FedEx. Therefore, we will have to ask you to pay an additional shipping fee. The fee depends on where you live, but it will be approximately 600-700 AUD. If you place an order online first, we will charge you this fee via Stripe or PayPal later. If you like to pay for this additional fee and the sword you will purchase altogether, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We will issue an invoice that includes both prices to complete the transaction. 

 

 If you like to make sure that Free Shipping is applied to the Japanese sword you would like to purchase, or have any questions about shipping to Australia, please feel free to contact us.
