The technical steps required to create the contract between you and us are as follows:

You place the order for products on the Website by pressing the confirm order button at the end of the checkout process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions on the Website. We will send to you an order acknowledgement email detailing the product/s you have ordered. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from us.

Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the receipt to you of the Products you have ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order, or you have cancelled it in accordance with your rights.

A contract is not formed at the point in time that payment has been taken from you by the Samurai-armour, nor at the point in time that you receive an email from the Samurai-armour acknowledging receipt of your order. Before the goods are despatched the Order may not be accepted by the Samurai-armour or may be cancelled by you.

If after concluding the contract circumstances come to the attention of the Seller which would in the opinion of the Seller seriously reduce the credit worthiness of the Buyer, the Seller is entitled to require either evidence from the Buyer as to his ability to settle all liabilities owed to the Seller by the Buyer or cash payment in advance, and all money due to the Seller becomes at the Seller’s discretion due and payable immediately, and the Seller is empowered to cancel all supply contracts not yet executed. Non-acceptance of an order may be a result of one of the following:

- The product you ordered being unavailable from stock;

- Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment;

- The identification of a pricing or product description error;


The Buyer shall not assign or transfer or purport to assign or transfer any contract or the benefit thereof to any person whatsoever without the prior written consent of the Seller. The contract will be concluded in English.

Be sure to examine the package for any signs of damage before accepting or signing for. We use a 3rd party inspection company to inspect all orders before they dispatch and ship to prevent the shipment being defective or incorrect. The Buyer is ultimately responsible for inspecting Goods for defects or non-conformity upon delivery and must report such to the Seller within 7 days. After this period, the Buyer will have accepted the Goods. If the Seller agrees to the return of Goods at its choosing, it must be in its original saleable condition with packaging, a return note and proof of purchase. Any the return costs will be payable by the Buyer.

The Buyer is relying on its own skill and judgement in relation to the Goods irrespective of any knowledge which the Seller or its servants, officers, or agents may possess or any representation the Seller or its servants, officers, or agents may have made, as to the purpose for which the Goods are supplied or their suitability.

Please understand that these products are handmade, crafted and painted. They will not always be perfect and their might be some cosmetic blemishes. On some occasions there might be variations between the pictured products and the actual products you receive. From time to time some products or parts may be substituted (ie. material colours / patterns) due to lack of availability, but never with lower quality materials. These are not common issues, but they may occasionally happen. We will where possible always try to meet any requirements and orders placed.
