Terms and Conditions
Sale of dangerous articles
The items I sell are intended to be as close to the original artefacts as possible meaning that many will be dangerous to either user or bystander if used incorrectly or even if used correctly. It is the purchasers’ responsibility to use the items safely and to make sure they do not contravene local laws.
All items of a dangerous nature supplied by Tods Workshops Ltd will only be supplied to persons over the age of 18.
By adding an age restricted item to your cart you are confirming that you are of legal age to purchase the item.
Quality and after sales service
I make items of a high quality, both in the materials and the workmanship, but they are items made largely in a period way to period standards.
What I mean and by way of example is that a sharp knife will cut a leather scabbard if you squeeze the scabbard as you draw the knife. A modern manufacturer may get round this by clever scabbard design or resin impregnation of the leather or metal rivets at key points or all manner of other methods that are not open to me. If you squeeze the scabbard and it (or you) gets cut as you draw the knife there is nothing wrong with the scabbard; there is something wrong with the way you draw the knife.
If you leave a wooden bowl face down on damp grass in full sun and it splits there is nothing wrong with the bowl, there is an issue with the care you have given it.
The items I sell are ‘real’ items and so will have many of the ‘problems’ that modern manufacture has got rid of and this means you have to look after them and there is a responsibility on you to upkeep this side of the sales agreement.
On the other hand I have a reputation for quality and service I like to upkeep and if there is a genuine issue with any item I sell I will strive to set it right. That is my side of the sales agreement.
If you have any specific questions please use the form above to contact me.
When a commission for Tod's Stuff is placed it is on the understanding that the item will not be an exact copy of another item, it will be ‘similar to’ or ‘in the style of’. If the person placing the commission does not like the piece made then they need not purchase the item. If a deposit has been placed it will be returned if the item is easily saleable to another; if the item is very unusual or will have little chance of a quick sale then the deposit may be retained.

Standard shipping is by Royal Mail. Other reputable couriers may also be used.
Postage charges are APPROXIMATE and calculated on the value of the sale and weight of the package. For the UK they are estimated as follows:
- Up to £49.99 - £7.00
- £50.00-£149.99 - £10.50
- £150.00-£449.99 - £12.00
- £450.00-£749.99 - £20.00
- £750.00 plus - £25.00
Paypal UK does not support international, pre-calculated postage charges, so if you are an international purchaser I will contact you separately asking for a postage supplement.
From experience, charges for international deliveries are usually a minumum of £15 up to about £28 for heavier items to the US etc. (total not additional) but I will contact you separately to let you know the additional cost.
We can only send packages up to 2kg by Royal Mail Internationally. Heavier than that and it has to go by courier.
The above table is a guideline. Certain large or very expensive items supplied by Tod's Stuff may cost more to ship but you will be advised if this is the case.
