I was hoping to get some info for shipping from the USA to Canada as its been a while since I've done it, should I put the piece as a Theater prop and keep insurance at a minimum as it has been requested of me for international to other countries? If anyone has anything to add lemme know, thanks!
I've never been hit by import fees on a sword shipped to me in Canada. I believe I've received paperwork with "sword" on the shipping label some with "sporting goods" (my preference) or "theater prop". One came to me with a very wordy description of its contents. That one was delayed by customs and opened.
Speaking only from experience, the word "gift" usually prefixing any sentence of what's in the box helps things move smoothly
(I make no claims on our customs practices, I offer only my opinion of what's been done in the past with me)
Ouroboros: For my American brothers and sisters, may your 4th of july be spent as you best see fit. Stay safe all o y'all. I'll be raising a glass this evening to toast your Independence Day

aldarith: Thank you, you too! I spent it swimming and sewing a US Civil war fatigue jacket from a Wambaugh & White pattern kit!

aldarith: and as sword enthusiasts, we all do a lot of backwards-looking

aldarith: It's a day of both. You can't consider the future without considering the past, otherwise you can't tell which way is which.
