Hi, I'm Lisa from Blades by Brown. I wanted to post here for all of the international members, those outside to the USA. It is true that we no longer accept credit cards from customers outside of the US. We had to change our policy earlier this year. Now, we ask all customers from outside of the US to send a Western Union wire or an international money order. We realize that it can be inconvenient to purchase an international money order or process a Western Union wire. So we are giving a 10% discount off of the price of the merchandise, as a purchase incentive. If you are a member outside of the US and would like to inquire about a sword, go to this link: http://www.BladesbyBrown.com/lotr/inquiry.html We will respond with the shipping charges and order total, and if you'd like to take us up on it, you can. No obligation. Oh, and mention in the inquiry that you are a member here, so we can include your member discount in the quote as well. I am looking forward to reading more of the great posts here, and hope to get the time to become an active poster soon.
