Group Feder Order

We are getting together a group order of the “Italian” feders by Viktor Berbekucz. Once we get ten paid orders via PayPal (to take advantage of the discount), we will submit our group order and get some swords!

Deadline is March 25th. If we do not have ten feder orders paid by March 25th, we will wait until we have ten. If we do not get ten orders by April 25th, we will return payments.

$250 paid via PayPal, includes fees and shipping from Europe to the Madison MFFG headquarters.

Once the swords are here in the States, we will work with you to arrange a pick-up at the Symposium or here in Madison. If you cannot pick-up your sword at the Symposium or here in Madison, then we can make additional shipping arrangements after the swords arrive.
