Buying a knife/sword

In General - You must be over 18 years to purchase any edged collectable from us. Please be aware of your compliance with local and state laws to legally purchase swords, knives, axes etc. We will not be responsible for any consequences of non-compliance

Within Victoria:

In Victoria, as at January 1st 2012, the following items are "Prohibited", as per the Victorian Control of Weapons Act;

Swords (steel bladed)
Daggers (double edged knives)

** Please note that this is NOT a complete list of Prohibited weapons in Victoria, simply a list of items that we sell that require an exemption to purchase.

Due to Victorian Control of Weapons Act 1990, we cannot ship prohibited items to a Victorian address, unless you have an exemption. Details on the law, and how to obtain an exemption, can be found at: http://www.police.vic.gov.au/content.asp?Document_ID=25574

Once you have an exemption or weapons permit, we will need you to scan your membership card or certificate, as well as a current Victorian drivers license and then send them by email to sales@totalemergencysupplies.com.au with your phone number, so we can send your item quickly.

If you are unsure as to your legal position regarding the ownership of the items you wish to purchase, please contact Police Licensing Services Division on 1300 651 645. They will be able to explain what form of permit or exemption is required for legal ownership of the item(s) in question.

Australian States other than Victoria:

Swords are currently only prohibited in Victoria however Daggers laws vary in each state

As State laws change regularly, it is impossible for us to give exact information regarding the legal status of items in every State of Australia. As such, we strongly suggest that you contact your local State Police Department and ask them for specific information regarding the ownership of items you wish to purchase. Contact details for each State’s relevant departments can be found below.
